Brazilian judge lifts ban on conversion therapy, rules homosexuality a disease
The ruling overturns a national psychology council decision in 1999 forbidding psychologists from offering treatments claiming to ‘cure’ gay people
By Dom Phillips

In Brazil, a federal judge has ruled to overturn a years-old ban on conversion therapy. Judge Waldemar de Carvalho overturned a 1999 ban on the practice in favor of the idea that homosexuality is a disease that can be treated. 

The judge ruled in favor of an evangelical Christian woman named Rozangela Justino, whose license to practice as a psychologist was revoked last year when it was found that she was practicing conversion therapy. 

In a 2009 interview with the Folha de S Paulo newspaper, Justino said she saw homosexuality as a “disease”, advised patients to seek religious guidance and said: “I feel directed by God to help people who are homosexual.” She did not respond to a request to comment.

The Federal Council of Psychology said in a statement that the decision “opens the dangerous possibility of the use of sexual reversion therapies” and promised to contest it legally.

Council president Rogério Giannini, a psychologist based in São Paulo, said its 1999 decision prohibiting “sexual conversion” therapy had already faced off other legal actions and even a proposed bill in Congress.

“There is no way to cure what is not a disease,” Giannini told the Guardian. “It is not a serious, academic debate, it is a debate connected to religious or conservative positions.”

This is deeply disappointing and extremely dangerous. We have a lot of work to do, and I am certain this is not the last we’ll hear of this fight.

Obs: “crespo” is a word in BR Portuguese for the afro-curly texture.

Rigoberta Menchú (b. 1959) is a Guatemalan political activist who received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1992. She is a strong campaigner for indigenous and women’s rights, particularly active during the Guatemalan Civil War.

She was forced to go into exile in Mexico in 1981, but organised the national resistance and the struggle for indigenous rights from outside her country. Since the end of the war, she campaigned for those responsible for the torture and genocide of the native population to be tried in Spanish courts, an effort which was successful on various occasions.
