On National Coming Out Day, an Unprecedented Stand Against LGBTQ+ Conversion Efforts With an Aim to Protect More Americans

On National Coming Out Day, 28 major U.S. healthcare associations including NALGAP Inc., representing over 1.3 million providers, jointly denounced LGBTQ+ conversion therapy. The United States Joint Statement (USJS) aims to end unscientific and harmful practices, providing legal protection and supporting legislative efforts. With signatories like the American Medical Association, the USJS addresses ethical issues, informs the public, and fosters LGBTQ+ affirming healthcare. The initiative highlights the rejection of conversion therapy by the medical community and aims to save healthcare costs, emphasizing the importance of authentic self-acceptance. The USJS partners with various associations to promote education and affirming care.
