Jordan has later tweeted how it "breaks his heart" to see a young girl who only loves another young girl to be punished this way. The girl’s mother has responded to this campaign, confirming that Sarah is currently at staying at the Texas facility, but denying that her stay is related to her sexuality. “My daughter would be heartbroken that she is being misrepresented this way,” she told the American-Statesman. Currently housed at the ‘Heartlight Ministries Boarding School’ in Texas, it is believed Sarah being forced to treat being gay as a sin and during her time there she will undergo strict therapy to learn ‘Christian’ values that homosexuality is abnormal. Campaign organisers claim Sarah has already tried to run away, but due to the rural location of the facility she was bought back by members of staff and punished for her behaviour. On the website, the boarding school states it creates "a safe haven of hope for 56 struggling teens at our residential counselling centre.” "Our atmosphere of relationships creates an arena of change for teens and parents lost in a broken world." The page was bought under scrutiny due to its legibility but since Jeremy Jordan has posted a Q&A section to provide further details.
