You might remember Daniel Piece from this heartbreaking video of his family holding what he referred to as a "pray away the gay" intervention last year. Instead of praying away the gay, which is impossible and awful for so many reasons, the "intervention" resulted in the family essentially disowning Daniel, who was only 19 at the time. The good news is that, a year later, Daniel is doing much better. While he's no longer in touch with his family, he has found a loving support net both locally and around the world, and he's been able to put time and money towards helping other LGBT youth dealing with similar family issues.
