Dear Axcella,

Being gay is not a choice. It’s not a lifestyle decision. It’s not something you can will yourself to change. And that’s why it’s no surprise that gay “conversion” centres, which try to persuade gay people that they’re actually straight, just don’t work.

In fact, many experts say that gay conversion programs can also lead to severe depression, anxiety, and even suicidal tendencies, especially among young people.

Living Waters, for example, is a Christian program out of Toronto that claims it can “heal” gay individuals. It also costs $550. The leader, Dave Lawson, believes that God made us to only be sexually attracted to the opposite sex so homosexuals cannot exist. Living Waters is registered by the government and gets most of its funds from tax-receipted donations. This money has allowed them to start programs in churches all over Canada and allows the leader s of the organization to make from $40,000 to $79,999 a year. The leaders of Living Waters and organizations like it are essentially profiting off of people’s suffering.

Many countries are no longer supporting gay conversion programs. Please sign the petition if you believe Canada should ban them, too.
