Tonight's SPECIAL GUEST is Drew Carillio, survivor and actor. One of today's most passionate activists when it comes to the horrors, the shame and the preventative steps we can all take when it comes to sexual abuse, is aspiring actor and model, Drew Carrillo. Many know Carrillo for his role in the movie "Vampires Suck," in which he played the part of a cast member of "Jersey Shore." He also has been featured in many popular television advertisements, the most recent being the "NERF or Nothing" toy campaign. In an interview with San Diego Gay & Lesbian News, Drew who is now openly gay, tells his "backstory" .. that he was raped at the age of 16 while a dedicated member of a prominent movement called Teen Mania Ministries. Coming to terms with one's sexuality can be very dramatic and tough due to gender societal parameters. To make matters worse for Drew and other young followers like him, Teen Mania Ministries spends millions of dollars on educational materials telling members of the church that homosexual men are in fact, often that way because they were raped. Drew was featured on the Dr Phil Show in 2005.
