The Queer Action Coalition of Memphis, Tenn., plans a June 5 vigil at Love In Action, marking one year since LIA’s involuntary detainment of sexually struggling youths made headlines.

The scandal severely curtailed LIA’s activities, but the antigay organization appears to have received a fresh injection of cash because — as the coalition reports — LIA recently expanded its recruitment of antigay and troubled youths. LIA uses the language of war — “ammunition” and “battle” — and positions struggling youths as pawns in a culture war. Visit the QAC website for details.
