“We have to say something out loud about this.”

A special report by ABC into gay conversion "camps" across the U.S. featured a familiar story from last year.

Supergirl star Jeremy Jordan was interviewed in the special about his campaign last summer to help his 17-year-old cousin, Sarah, whom he claimed was undergoing "pray the gay away" treatment at a Christian boarding school.

Jordan started a GoFundMe page to raise money for legal help to get Sarah out of the school--which she has since left.

During the ABC interview, Jordan explained why he felt so motivated to speak out about the dangers of conversion therapy.

"We have to say something out loud about this," he said, adding that Sarah's story is "the story of so many young gay teens, especially in the South."
