PFLAG supports the views expressed by Natalie Cooper in her letter published by The Sydney Morning Herald today. At PFLAG we believe everyone has the right to their own religious beliefs. However, we know the harm which results when these beliefs are used to hurt others. No one has the right to use religion as a means to cause damage or distress to anyone. From Ruth Green
Elly Howes, Labor Candidate for Balmain announced on her Facebook, If elected, a state labor government will legislate to make Gay Conversation Therapy illegal in NSW.

This week the horrible practice of Gay Conversation Therapy was made illegal in the state of Victoria. Thankyou to Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews . With a NSW state election in the near future, please ask your local candidates where they stand on this important issue. Gay Conversion Therapy is cruel and inhuman . It damages people and drives many to suicide. It should no longer be tolerated.
Please see the flyer for details of The Blue Mountains Queen’s Birthday Weekend Annual Ball, hosted by The Three Sisters Social Group.
