Supergirl's Jeremy Jordan is trying to save his cousin Sarah from a pray-away-the-gay facility

* Sarah is a 17-year-old high school student who has been sent to a Christian residential/boarding facility for “troubled teens” in East Texas by her parents to “pray away the gay” after she went to the prom with her girlfriend.

* Sarah attempted to walk out shortly after being placed in the facility, but was quickly caught by staff and punished for her escape attempt.

* Sarah’s extended family/relatives, including tv & Broadway actor Jeremy Jordan, are trying to win her release and have set up a GoFundMe account to help with attorney’s fees, which have already exceeded $20k, with a full hearing set for July.

* Homophobic piece of shit Patrick Von Dohlen, who is president of the San Antonio Family Association says, “It’s for their own protection and good. In this case, it’s natural for her to like boys. It’s not natural for her to like girls… It's going to cost them money that actually harms the young woman from getting the care and treatment she needs.” He claims that attempts to free Sarah interfere with parental rights. (Children’s rights? Whazzat?)
