TEXAS – There’s an online fundraiser that’s attempting to ‘save’ a 17-year-old whose parents sent her to an alleged “pray away the gay” Christian boarding school in Texas. A GoFundMe site called “Save Sarah” was created by her girl’s cousin, Jeremy Jordan, who plays Winn Schott on the CBS television show “Supergirl.” She’s trying to raise money to file legal action so Sarah, who is not otherwise being identified because of her age, can leave the school. Jordan says that Sarah was sent against her will to the school because she wanted to take a girl to her high school prom.
If you don’t want to hang out with gay people in your personal life, feel free to hole up with your own biases in your own home. But to try and impose a sexual orientation on someone who doesn’t swing that way is evil. And it’s the same kind of lunacy that fundamentalists accuse gay people of doing.
