Indigenous practices of reparative/conversion therapy practices with diverse sexual identities.

Over the years within the South African context, the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Intersex (LGBTI+) persons have been subjected to various acts or practices of oppression. Conversion Practices also referred to as Reparative Practices are the scientific and social practices or acts of trying to convert and/or change an individual's sexual orientation and/or gender identity. Conversion practices are not formally and legally recognized as a practice in South Africa. Therefore, there are no specific regulations on various forms of conversion practices.

The following survey explores the various forms of conversion practices within the South African context and captures the social realities of LGBTI+ persons demonstrating how indigenous practices in South Africa have taken the role of conversion/reparative therapy.

Participation in the survey is voluntary and participants will not be remunerated in any form. You can choose not to take part without any resultant penalty or future disadvantage whatsoever. You have the right to withdraw consent at any stage. The information you provide is confidential and your identity will not be disclosed to anyone. The survey is totally anonymous.
