Hawaii has become the 12th US state to ban therapists from offering conversion therapy to minors. The law, which will come into effect on July 1, was signed by Hawaii Governor David Ige. “The overwhelming scientific research has shown that conversion therapy is not effective and frequently has lasting harmful psychological impacts on minors,” Gov. Ige said in a ceremony held at the Hawaii State Capitol building. “For our LGBTQ youth, it often results in feelings of isolation, depression, and hopelessness. It has absolutely no place on our lovely islands,” he added. He later posted a message of support on Twitter, using the hashtag #BornPerfect.
