“The history of organizations like Love In Action are founded upon deception and have been proven ineffective and damaging to people,” Morgan Fox, an organizer of Queer Action Coalition who said she is a friend of Zach’s told the Washington Blade.
In Zach's words,
"It's been a week of torture - anger, and crying. Current mood: worried
I'm not sure if I'm even supposed to be on. I ran away for a short while. I came back and they took everything from me, they don't want me to have outside influences-- i dont know how long im going to be on, because if tehy wake up, im screwed. The program starts June 6 and is until either teh 17th or the 20th. I'm sorry I don't have time to write back o all of the comments and
messages. I'm just here to let everyone know I am still alive, I'm sure you've left messages on my cellphone, they took that.. and my keys... and the computer.. and I've been homebound. -=sigh=- I just need this to be over. Don't worry. I'll get through this. They've promised me things will get better whether this program does anything or not. Let's hope they aren't lying. I've been through hell. I've been emotionally torn apart for three days... I can't remember which days they were.. time's not what it used to be." ~ Zach's post June 3rd, 3 days before he was to be delivered to the camp.
