Lawmakers in France's National Assembly have given their unanimous backing to a new law which prohibits so-called ‘gay conversion therapy', voting 142-0.

Sustained efforts to “aim to modify or reprimand sexual orientation or gender identity,” which negatively influence the physical or mental health of victims, will be punishable by up to two years imprisonment and €30,000 in fines.
