A proposed ordinance made it out of committee on Monday, that would prohibit “reparative” therapy, that is, therapy designed to change sexual orientation or gender identity. The ordinance will now go before the full Cincinnati City Council for a vote. The ordinance, if passed, would impose a $200-a-day fine on violators.
The proposal was introduced by openly gay Councilman Chris Seelbach (pictured). Seelbach said: “This is not a partisan issue. is a matter of life and death for LGBT young people.”
