Video: A Stark reality

by Jeremy Hooper

Does everyone remember Zach Stark, the Tennessee teen who made national headlines back in 2005 when, after his parents forced him into the Love In Action "ex-gay" camp against his will, he shared his frightening experience with the world via his Myspace blog? Well, he's easing back into the spotlight. At the end of this preview clip from the forthcoming documentary "This Is What Love In Action Looks Like," you can for the first time see and hear from the now 19-year-old Stark:

Nothing more to say here really. He seems to have made it out the other side mostly unscathed. In fact, unlike other re-closted gays, the only "beard" Zach seems to have in his life is the one that's on his face. So that's nice.

We'll let you know more about the full documentary and where you can see it as soon as we receive that info.

Gays were considered to be poultry ?!? (1:05 in the clip.)

Daayyum. I still feel like a perv lusting after him though, and I'm only 24.

So he did in fact make it out just as big a 'Mo as ever? He dropped off the radar before anyone knew if he made it out unscathed. From that clip, for all we know he could be doing that interview to show just how "effective LIA is.
