If you haven’t heard it yet, Love in Action, once considered the Cadilac of “ex-gay” ministries, may very well be forced to shut down this week. B., a dear friend and a very clever lad (who wishes to remain anonymous), has kept on top of the Tennessee state investigation into the LIA program and told me this weekend that there had been movement in the case. Morgan Fox followed up and got the skinny on what is happening. You can read about it here.
Talking yesterday with Morgan about the protests the Queer Action Coalition led this summer, I felt hope and joy. Young people, many of them teens, stood up for what was right and against what was wrong, and as a result of their actions and the actions of bloggers like EJ, the plights of teens and adults in the Love in Action “ex-gay” boot camp became an international news story and LIA became the subject of two state of TN investigations.
