NEW YORK, NY – The New York City Council is seeking to repeal a citywide counseling ban out of concern that the ban would not survive the Supreme Court and would impact similar counseling bans across the United States.
In 2017, the Council passed an ordinance which prohibits counseling to reduce or eliminate unwanted same-sex attractions or gender confusion, for a fee. The citywide ordinance is unprecedented in that it applies to adults who are voluntarily seeking counsel. The constitutionality of the ban is being challenged by a lawsuit. If the challenge reaches the Supreme Court, the City Council fears an “unfavorable outcome” for the counseling ban that could block similar laws across the country. The State of New York has a counseling ban that applies to minors only, to which New York City will remain bound even if the city’s broader counseling ban is repealed.
