A PROMINENT LGBT campaigner has presented the Pope with evidence of 'conversion therapy'.

Jayne Ozanne, a gay evangelical Christian, met Pope Francis after attending morning mass in the grounds of the Vatican.

The author, from Littlemore, visited the week before last and later gave the Pope a copy of her memoir, Just Love.

It reflects on her journey of self-acceptance and exposes a so-called 'treatment' for homosexuality called conversion therapy, which she herself was subjected to.

She also handed the religious leader findings of a 2018 survey into faith and sexuality.

The Pope signed a t-shirt depicting John Henry Newman, who was the founder of a church in Littlemore and who was declared a saint in October.

Ms Ozanne founded the Ozanne Foundation last year, aiming to work with religious organisations to eliminate discrimination based on sexuality or gender.

She shared her story of having grown up in a church that told her she could never be a wife, mother or grandmother, which led her to a traumatic battle to try to force herself to become straight.

In 2017 the activist successfully lobbied the Church of England's legislative council to condemn conversion therapy, which - in extreme cases - can even involve electroshock 'treatment'.
