Australian booksellers petitioned to pull ‘conversion therapy’ titles

08/01/2019 | Q News

Equality Australia have launched a petition calling on Australian booksellers to remove titles promoting harmful LGBTIQ “conversion therapy”. The group’s call comes after Amazon recently agreed to remove “conversion therapy” books from sale in their online store after an 80,000-signature petition. Now Equality Australia are petitioning Australian retailers to follow suit. “Angus & Robertson and Dymocks are both continuing to sell books by the ‘Father of Conversion Therapy’, Joseph Nicolosi,” the petition reads. “This is an unacceptable risk of harm to young people who could find his texts in their bookstores. “Nicolosi was a psychologist and his books continue to be listed as medical textbooks, even though medical associations around the world agree that his methods are harmful and don’t work.”
