The group "Ban Conversion Therapy Kentucky" (BCTK) is hosting two fall cocktail receptions to raise funds for their work to get so-called "conversion therapy" banned in the Commonwealth.
- The first is at the 21C Museum Hotel in Louisville on Wednesday, November 10th, from 6 to 7:30 PM. Get tickets here.
- The second is at the 21C Museum Hotel in Lexington on Friday, November 12th, from 6 to 8 PM. Get tickets here
The tickets for both receptions range from $25 for students up to $1,000 for Host-level tickets. All tickets qualify as tax-deductible donations.
The Lexington reception is co-sponsored by the Imperial Court of Kentucky.
According to the event flyer, "Kentucky is poised with the best chance of being the next state to ban conversion therapy in the south and in the United States. Kentucky is the only state to have a bill to ban conversion therapy to be introduced by Republicans in both the House and the Senate of the Kentucky General Assembly. The bills are bipartisan, primarily sponsored by both parties because we strongly believe that protecting Kentucky's kids shouldn't be partisan."
(From the event flyer) Ban Conversion Therapy Kentucky is a nonpartisan, grassroots movement that was started in 2017 to protect children from conversion torture and advocate on behalf of any legislation that will protect and further LGBT rights. We do this work through legislation and education. We work with our lawmakers to educate them on the dangers of conversion torture so that they can pass meaningful legislation to end the practice, and we work with our communities across the commonwealth to educate citizens on the dangers of conversion torture. We have grown a grassroots movement that has members in every part of the state that will be well-established to continue our work educating the public and passing legislation that supports banning conversion torture and protecting other LGBTQ rights.
