The Change or Suppression (Conversion) Practices Prohibition Act 2021 was passed by the Victorian Parliament on 4 February 2021 and is an important step towards preventing and responding to the serious damage and trauma caused by change or suppression practices.  It ensures LGBTQ Victorians are able to live their lives authentically with pride, and makes clear that a person’s sexual orientation and gender identity are not broken and do not need to be fixed.
