Lincoln, Nebraska (AP) —The Lincoln City Council has approved measures to ban untrustworthy practices in conversion therapy for LGBTQ children — making Lincoln the first city in the state.
The Lincoln Journal Star reports that the city council voted 5 to 1 on Monday, banning the practice. It prohibits counselors, psychiatrists and therapists from attempting to change the sexual orientation or gender identity of minors.
Councilor Roy Christensen voted against the bill, questioning whether the city should interfere with the profession governed by the state’s license committee.
