Inhalt
Two days after Alex Cooper told her parents that she was lesbian, they took their 15-year-old daughter to Utah, where they signed over their parental rights to a group of fellow Mormons who promised to »cure« Alex from her homosexuality. For months, Alex was held captive in an unlicensed »residential treatment program«, one of several »therapeutic« boot camps scattered across Utah: a gulag where thousands of American teenagers have been sent by fundamentalist parents. Forbidden from attending school, Alex was beaten and verbally abused. »God's plan does not apply to gay people«, her captors told her. With the help of a legal team in Salt Lake City, Alex would eventually escape and make legal history in Utah by winning the right to live under the law's protection as an openly gay teenager. For the first time, Alex speaks out about her ordeal and its aftermath.
