The NSW Labor government has abandoned its promise to introduce new laws this year to outlaw gay conversion practices after church groups and LGBTQ advocates pleaded for more time to ensure the “sensitive” legislation strikes the right balance.
Minns said he made a commitment to ban LGBTQ conversion practices “and I intend to meet that commitment”.
“It’s clear, though, that we need more time and more consultation and I want to get this right,” Minns said. “Stakeholders have asked for more time to work through this. We’ll continue to engage and consult with a view to bringing a bill early next year.”
