The UK’s first transgender MP has hit out at the government for its attempt to exclude transgender people from a law banning ‘conversion therapy’.

Jamie Wallis, who is the Conservative MP for Bridgend, came out as transgender last week: “I have never lived my truth and I’m not sure how.

Perhaps it starts with telling everyone.” Last Thursday (31 March), it was revealed the government was no longer planning to introduce a ban ‘conversion therapy’, according to documents obtained by ITV News. ‘Conversion therapy’ is typically defined as any attempt at changing a person’s sexuality or gender identity, often involving techniques such as electroshock therapy or prayer.
