The Queer Action Coalition has posted an update to the most recent Love in Action news including this post with links accounts D.J. Butler’s story which hit all the major press in Memphis.
Butler, a 17 year old who was forced by his parents to attend LIA/Refuge, escaped and ultimately was granted legal emancipation from his parents.
(NOTE: I cannot vouch for the accuracies in all these accounts. Sadly news providers are sloppy and generalize too much. One of the few journalists I trust to get the facts right is Eartha Melzer of the Washington Blade, who has yet to report on this story. Is she still at the Blade???)
