- Video: Ending, Healing, and Learning – The Current and Future State of SOGIECE plenary panel during Summit 2019. Travis Salway, a social epidemiologist, and a leading SOGIECE researcher moderated this interactive panel featuring critical discussion from the perspectives of survivors, policy advocates, and service providers to mobilize research, practice, and policy actions with regard to sexual orientation and gender identity change efforts (SOGIECE). The panel helped to increase awareness and understanding of conversion therapy, or SOGIECE in Canada, and its consequences with regard to sexuality, identity, health, and social well-being, and what is required to help survivors heal.

Salway, T., Ferlatte, O., Gesink, D., & Lachowsky, N. J. (2020), Canadian Journal of Psychiatry, 65(7), 502–509. This research, published in 2020, has found that conversion therapy to attempt to change a person’s sexual orientation is still common in Canada. The study calls for government and societal support to end conversion therapy practices. According to university and community-based researchers, 4% of Canadian gay and bisexual men—approximately 20,000 individuals across the country—have been exposed to conversion therapy, which includes scientifically discredited practices that try to repress, discourage, or change a person’s sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.
