Keeping up with the story of Zach in Tennessee, who came out to his parents only to have them send him to a religious right camp in Memphis, with the intention of making him “straight.” I tried making the last update a sticky post, but it ended up making my whole blog disappear. So, I thought another post was in order.
I’m glad to see that some other blogs are also picking up the story. None of my efforts with some of the more widely-read blogs paid off, but it’s good to see that the story is spreading and getting more attention anyway.
People have been great about sending me stuff to post, too. Thanks to Adam Sanford for sending the drawing of Zach above. Paul Chirumbolo sent a link on reparative therapy, along with the following people to contact about Zack’s story.
