LAKEWOOD, Ohio -- Lakewood City Council has passed legislation that would ban gay conversion therapy in the city.
Ward 4 Councilman Dan O’Malley proposed the ordinance which would make the therapy a criminal act and penalize anyone who practiced it.
Lakewood joins Columbus, Cincinnati, Dayton and Toledo as cities that have banned the therapy.
The city passed a non-discrimination ordinance in 2016.
