New York State Senator Urges Google to Remove Gay Conversion Therapy App

Google’s Play Store is currently hosting a gay conversion therapy app from a religious group called Living Hope Ministries that gives users access to recordings of sermons, text devotionals, and at least one podcast, including a section that appears to mostly contain stories telling gay readers that their sexuality can be ignored or changed. For New York State Senator Brad Hoylman — whose bill prohibiting conversion therapy in New York was recently signed into law, and who represents the district where Google has its New York City headquarters — that’s unconscionable.
