GOING ALL OUT

Major booksellers in Spain are selling a book that teaches parents to “cure” their children from being gay.

Ask Amazon, El Corte Inglés and La Casa del Libro to stop profiting from dangerous gay “cures”.

Tomorrow in Spain, a dangerous book is launching that teaches parents how to “cure” their children of being gay – and some of the main bookstores in the country, like Amazon, El Corte Inglés and La Casa del Libro, are selling it.

These stores have policies prohibiting products that promote discrimination. But instead, they’re making money from spreading dangerous “treatments” that could lead so many young people to self-destructive behaviour and even suicide.

Can you tell Spanish bookstores that selling gay “cure” books is bad business? Once they take them off their shelves, it will be much harder for anti-gay groups to spread and fund their hate in Spain.

Quack doctors and religious extremists all over the world are using fake “therapy” to teach gay people to hate themselves. With no science to back them up, these sessions are much closer to fanatical exorcisms than any kind of clinical therapy.

Now they’re coming for Spain: the author of the book – an American “therapist” named Richard Cohen – has just held a “gay cure” seminar in Madrid and is ready to launch his book on another session starting this Friday.

Will you join in before the event starts on Friday? Please sign here:
