Following the true story of a teenage boy sent to a reform camp for being gay, This Is What Love In Action Looks Like documents the widely controversial and inspirational story of what The New York Times referred to as “A modern day message in a bottle.”
In the summer of 2005, Zach, a 16-year-old boy from Memphis, TN wrote on his MySpace blog that he had told his parents that he was gay. Within days, his mother and father would send him to Love In Action, a fundamentalist Christian program that offered “freedom from homosexuality.”
The depressed and fearful teenager shared his feelings on his blog, which quickly spread from his friends to the local community as well as gaining national attention and sparking protests outside the organization’s doors.
