Ex-Gay, Fake Straight

by Accidental Bear

Who are you fooling and why? I’m convinced that people who claim to be ex-gay ( uh hum bullshit cough hmm) are the saddest, weakest gays of all. They must have failed miserably at being gay, being happy and getting laid and desperate for acceptance. Being a a sad gay is ALWAYS better than a FAKE straight. It’s os confusing because they say they are GOD people. Then don’t they know GOD knows the truth. Beats me I never met the guy/gal (GOD)

Meet the Ex-Gay, Ex-Drag Queen Pastor

Pastor Ja'Von Crockett X390 (GRAB) | ADVOCATE.COM

Pastor Ja’Von Crockettappeared this week on the religious talk showAtlanta Live to discuss his life before he came to Christ — as a gay man who dressed as a drag queen named Mother Cavalli.

Crockett appears on the show with Pastor Willis Graham, a man he credits with helping his true self to blossom. He refers to Graham as the minister of “redemption and the restoration of life.”

He says Graham didn’t judge when he first attended his ministry: “He allowed me to be me. I told him, ‘the minute you put me in a box — I’m gone.’”

Graham says he never viewed Crockett’s sexuality and “lifestyle” as an obstacle — he says his desire was to “be used of God to bring out the man that he is now.”

He says their relationship is one of “brotherly love” and that Crockett has taught him what it really is to love.
