How Is Barcelona Handling Conversion Therapy Chop Shops? With Federal Investigations

Authorities in Spain’s Catalonia province are launching an investigation into a “gay cure” clinic in Barcelona because, according to the region’s health department, “We do not consider homosexuality as an illness, far from it.” If the investigation finds conversion therapies are indeed being practiced at the clinic, officials could levy fines against it.
