As the Puerto Rican government debates a conversion therapy bill, Kany García denounces this controversial practice. Boricua’s singer-songwriter wrote a open letter to Senators in support of Senate Bill 184, which would help end conversion therapy on the island.

Kany is one of Puerto Rico’s most decorated artists.

García is one of the best artists in Puerto Rico. She has won six Latin Grammys over a career of 20 nominations. In March, she was also nominated for her third Grammy Award for her latest album. Mesa Para Dos.

This year, Kany celebrated five years since his release.

On Valentine’s Day 2016, García revealed that she was in a relationship with her partner, Jocelyn Troche. The couple are still going strong with Troche appearing in last year’s “Lo Que En Ti Veo”. She and García share beautiful moments in the video. At the Latin Grammy Awards in November, there was a big wave of artists from the LGBTQ + community in major categories, including García, Ricky Martin, Pablo Alborán, and Joy Huerta from Jesse y Joy.

She tells Puerto Rican senators to pass Senate Bill 184 in her letter.

Since his release, García has remained at the forefront of queer issues in Puerto Rico. The passage of Senate Bill 184 aims to ban conversion therapy. This controversial practice has long harmed LGBTQ + communities. This is seen as a way to rid them of their gender or queer gender identity.

“Puerto Rico deserves that every girl and boy, young woman and young man can be who they want to be and love those they want to love,” García wrote in his letter. “This measure has nothing to do with religion and everything to do with the protection of Puerto Rican children and young people.”

García speaks from his own experience. “I’m an example of how to be true to who you are. I am a woman who deeply loves her partner and who is loved by her family and our people. There is nothing to change. There is nothing to fix. There is nothing to be cured. We must give the same chance that I had, to be who I am, to all our children and our young people.

García further writes that the bill should be passed as is without any amendment. According to Al Día NewsPeople’s Democratic Party Senators Gretchen Hau, Elizabeth Rosa Velez and Migdalia Gonzalez tabled several amendments to Senate Bill 184 on Wednesday. Puerto Rico Governor Pedro Pierluisi has indicated he is ready to replace senators if necessary.
