ICPR 2024 Abstract

Embracing Identity: Psychedelics and the GLBT+ Community

This talk will discuss the ways psychedelics have affected the GLBT+ community. Dr. Cavnar
will discuss her research on gays and lesbians’ identity and self-acceptance after ayahuasca
experiences, and how psychedelics, in general, can help gay people embrace themselves
and connect spiritually in environments that make that difficult. This talk will also examine a
period when psychedelics were used to promote sexual orientation change, also known as
“conversion therapy.” The talk will touch on psychedelic therapy as a trauma treatment for
the GLBT community and why that is necessary. The presentation will end with a look at how
GLBT+ people can be included in psychedelic research and therapy.
