Help ‘Supergirl’ Star Jeremy Jordan Bust His Teen Cousin Out Of A ‘Pray Away The Gay’ Facility

Supergirl star Jeremy Jordan and his family have joined forces in an effort to free his 17-year-old cousin Sarah from a facility in Texas where she is being subjected to pray-away-the-gay style “therapy.”

When Sarah’s parents discovered she was planning to go to prom with her girlfriend, they sent her away to the compound for a year of ex-gay therapy. She’s reportedly barred from any contact with the outside world and is doing forced labor every day while also enduring Bible-based “treatment.”

She attempted to run away, but was found and returned to the camp.

Now Jordan and his family are asking for help to raise funds to cover the legal fees necessary to help get Sarah out of there. They’ve set up a GoFundMe campaign that has already raised over $40,000. Newly out dreamboat Colton Haynes has even contributed a hefty $5,000.

Ex-gay conversion therapy has been in the news lately, as more states ban the practice on minors. The practice is already illegal in Vermont, New Jersey, California, Illinois, Oregon, and the District of Columbia as well as Cincinnati, OH.

As the Jordan clan points out on the GoFundMe page: “Not only does this type of ‘therapy’ not work, mental health professionals from organizations like the American Medical Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics have found it to be psychologically damaging, especially for minors.”
