One of Jackie Hill-Perry’s first gender confusion memories when was she was in the 1st or 2nd grade.
“I just distinctly remember wanting to be a boy, wanting to be the dominant role in any type of relationship,” she recounts on a CBN video.
Today, she’s a Christian hip-hop artist with the label Humble Beast.
When she was little, she went to church with her aunt every Sunday growing up. Seeing her aunt’s life and always hearing about Jesus, Jackie formed early convictions about who He was. But she also suffered sexual abuse as a child, and this contributed to her gender confusion, according to Wikipedia.
Jackie was always attracted to women. “It was just underlying temptation,” she says.
At age 17, she finally decided to act on the same-sex attraction.
She went to a homecoming dance at a different school than hers and it was the first time that a female was flirting with her. “It felt natural.”
She attended gay pride parades and went to gay bars. She enjoyed it, but never felt a “deep soul” satisfaction. Every time she had a girlfriend she would tell them they were sinners.
“I know this is not right to know so much about the truth about God and then to continue to live contrary to it.”
When she was 19 and alone in her room, she felt as if God was showing her that the sins that she loved would kill her and she’d die and go to hell.
“It’s a heavy weight to know that you’re a sinner and God is holy.” As she began to relate to biblical truth, she recognized she needed to initiate a relationship with God through simple faith and belief.
She had a conversation one night with God and told him she had no desire to be straight. God told her he would be able to change her desires.
She started thinking about all her bad habits: stealing, drugs, pride, anger, arrogance, and drunkenness.
But all the “fun” in the world couldn’t outweigh the punishment of hell. “Everything was not worth it.”
