FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Lawmakers from both houses of the Kentucky legislature are promoting a bill to effectively ban so-called conversion therapy.

The legislators held a rally at the statehouse on Tuesday during which they and at least one student who had been through the therapy testified.

Republican Sen. Alice Forgy Kerr of Lexington is the lead sponsor of the Senate measure. She referred to the practice as “conversion torture."
