Mattachine Briefs PFLAG

The Mattachine Society of Washington, D.C. is excited to partner with Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) Academy Online to tell the forgotten, often-erased, history of the “cure” of homosexuality.


Mattachine legal counsel Lisa Linsky, partner at McDermott Will & Emery, described for PFLAG Academy’s webinar exactly what happened to generations of LGBTQ Americans and young people— and how we need to stop the harmful, debunked practice of conversion therapy. You can find the presentation here.
