There are nine days left for people to make submissions to the Justice Select Committee to have their say on the proposed legislation to ban harmful conversion therapy practices. 

Conversion therapy has been discredited by the National Health Service (NHS) and the World Psychiatric Association.

At the time of our interview, Shaneel Lal, co-founder of Conversion Therapy Action Group said that there were more submissions against banning conversion therapy than for. This includes submissions from trans exclusionary radical feminist (TERF) groups. 

Jessica spoke to Shaneel Lal about why it is important for allies, parents and the LGBTQIATakatāpui+ community to make a submission.
