MINNESOTA: Omar Rallies For Ex-Gay Torture Ban Bill

Minneapolis’ CBS affiliate reports:

Rep. Ilhan Omar has rallied LGBTQ youth in support of a Minnesota bill to ban gay conversion therapy for minors or vulnerable adults. Omar spoke Thursday on the state Capitol steps to a crowd that marched from OutFront Minnesota’s seventh annual Youth Summit at Saint Paul College.

The Minnesota Democrat called gay conversion therapy “torture” and said it should no longer be a legal practice in Minnesota or in any other state. Omar was a co-sponsor of a similar bill when she was in the Minnesota House. She was elected to Congress in November.
