LGBT+ activist pushes Amazon for policy update on conversion therapy books

Last week, Amazon removed conversion therapy books from its site in response to public pressure including over 80,000 supporters of a Change.org petition.

Petition starter, Sky Gray applauds Amazon's actions but believes the tech giant needs to clearly specify its policies for any changes to hold. Sky says:

'Amazon's removal of conversion therapy books is a huge milestone that prevents countless acts of abuse and scarring. However, with no change in Amazon's written policy, the books could be sold again at any moment. This is why I will be keeping the petition open. Amazon needs to set a clear policy stating it will no longer allow conversion therapy books on its site.'

Below is Amazon's current policy as found online:

Content Guidelines for Books - Other Prohibited Content
As a bookseller, we provide our customers with access to a variety of viewpoints, including books that some customers may find objectionable. That said, we reserve the right not to sell certain content, such as pornography or other inappropriate content.

Sky would like the final sentence to read 'such as pornography, conversion therapy or other inappropriate content.'

Please visit Change.org for more information.
