Can gay people change their sexual orientation or gender identity? 

No – and efforts to do so aren’t just unnecessary – they’re damaging.
Religious and secular organizations do sponsor campaigns and studies claiming that LGBT people can change their sexual orientation or gender identity because there is something wrong. We believe that it is our anti-LGBT attitudes, laws and policies that need to change, not LGBT people. 
These studies and campaigns suggesting that LGBT people can change are based on ideological biases and not peer-reviewed solid science. No studies show proven long term changes in gay or transgender people, and many reported changes are based solely on behaviour and not a person’s actual self-identity.
