General Assembly Resolution # 559
A resolution to improve worldwide human and civil rights.
Category: Civil Rights
Proposed by: Tinhampton
Believing that LGBTQ+ people should not be persecuted simply for being LGBTQ+, the General Assembly hereby:
defines "conversion therapy" as those interventions meant to alter or reverse any person's sexual orientation or gender identity,
requires member states to prohibit the practice and advertisement of conversion therapy in all circumstances,
clarifies that this resolution does not affect the right of willing individuals to seek and receive gender-adequation or -affirmation procedures, and
strongly recommends that members provide all necessary and relevant support to those who have already undergone, or are likely to undergo, conversion therapy.
