Banning conversion therapy
Our response to the Consultation to help the development of legislation for banning conversion therapy.
The Lesbian Rights Alliance exists to stand up for the rights of lesbians and to prevent lesbian erasure. The Lesbian Rights Alliance exists to stand up for the rights of lesbians and to prevent lesbian erasure. We also promote lesbian visibility as lesbians are an overlooked social category, including when it comes to addressing ‘gay’conversion therapy. We welcome government proposals to further outlaw physical conversion practices against lesbians and to uphold our same sex attraction rights in law (Equality Act 2010, Section 7). Alongside other women and girls we also welcome our legal rights to single sex facilities and spaces as defined in the Equality Act exceptions (Equality Act, 2010. Schedule 3 S. 27).

Outside the DfE 18th June 2020
The Department for Education is allowing children from aged 4 upwards to be brainwashed by transgender propaganda. Girls are told that if they do not like ‘girly’ things, if they wear trousers and have short hair, they are really boys, born in the wrong body.
Stonewall, the DfE recommended resource, does not recognise biological sex or same sex attraction.
It is flooding primary schools with cartoon videos aimed at children aged 7 upwards where girls are changed into boys and boys into girls.
Lesbian Invisibility is promoted by the census
There is no specific question asking women if they are lesbian. Instead, the sexual orientation question only asks are you lesbian or gay.
But even this has been compromised by the question on sex.
In our view the sex question should have been the sex observed at birth of every member of the population – sex cannot be changed it is a biological fact.

Declaration on Women’s Sex Based Rights
The Declaration on Women’s Sex Based Rights is a statement on the importance of keeping the current sex based definition of woman.
The Declaration outlines current international laws and policies on women’s rights and how they are being threatened by organisations that are trying to change the definition of woman. It reaffirms existing women’s rights and suggests ways that states should promote and protect them.
It was drafted with input from women internationally. Launching in March 2019, the Declaration is a clear call to law and policy makers to retain the sex-based biological definition of woman.
