In a landmark victory, the Mexican Senate overwhelmingly approved a bill banning conversion therapy, marking a decisive victory for LGBTQ+ rights and a potential turning point for the wider Latin American region. The legislation passed with a 77-4 vote (15 abstentions), reflecting an evolving societal acceptance of LGBTQ+ identities in Mexico.

The success of the bill is a testament to the collective effort of the LGBTQ+ community and its allies, including YAAJ Mexico, an organization that has become synonymous with the fight for LGBTQ+ rights in Mexico. For over a decade, YAAJ Mexico has led initiatives aimed at dismantling prejudicial practices that target the LGBTQ+ community, culminating in this historic legislative achievement.

We understand that legislative victories, while essential, are only one step. The trauma of conversion therapy leaves lasting scars. That's why Grindr has sent numerous messages connecting our users in various countries with the mental health resources they need to heal from such experiences. These resources include hotlines, peer support groups, and educational materials to help individuals navigate challenging situations. We're proud to play our part in this, and our dedicated "I Need Support" page offers a centralized hub for accessing these vital services.

At Grindr, we've long championed the well-being and safety of our LGBTQ+ users around the globe. Mexico's bold action catalyzes change, inspiring other nations to prioritize the fundamental rights of their LGBTQ+ citizens. We stand resolute in our commitment to progress, and together with our vibrant global community, we urge further advancements in LGBTQ+ rights everywhere.
