Born Perfect is seeking survivors who wish to counter religious conversion therapy. We are partnering, in particular, with people from a variety of faith traditions to amplify the voices of LGBTQ people who have endured religiously-oriented efforts to change one’s sexual orientation or gender identity.  Our goal is to end these harmful practices through education and activism.

There are many ways for survivors to counter conversion therapy within religious communities, such as:

  • Working together on public speaking, writing, video, and artistic expression
  • Networking with LGBTQ-affirming religious organizations
  • Collaborating with supportive clergy, religious scholars, and religious schools
  • Sharing our experiences
  • Collecting information on conversion therapists 

Are you a survivor of religious conversion therapy? Getting involved, and making a difference, is simple. Please contact us today!

    Please reach out to us.


    Born Perfect is a survivor-led program created by the National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR) in 2014 to end conversion therapy by passing laws across the country that protect LGBTQ children and young people, fighting in courtrooms to ensure their safety, and raising awareness about the serious harms caused by these dangerous practices. https://bornperfect.org
