The Democratic Party has released its 2020 platform for consideration before delegates vote on it.

The platform takes a strong stand against conversion therapy, calling for a nationwide ban.

Meghan Stabler, a trans woman and member of the platform committee, told The Advocate that the platform is the first from either major party to include the terms “LGBTQ,” “transgender women of color,” “nonbinary,” “nonconforming,” and “gender confirmation surgery.”


Born Perfect is the leading campaign to end conversion therapy. We are survivors, lawyers, and policy experts working together to protect LGBTQ+ people nationally and around the globe. Born Perfect is a program of National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR).
