Jackie Hill-Perry, a spoken word and hip-hop artist whose talents and unique testimony have garnered her popularity and praise, recently shared her story of leaving the gay lifestyle with televangelist Pat Robertson’s Christian Broadcasting Network.

“Growing up, Jackie was molested by a family friend, bullied in school, and fatherless, which accompanied with (an) inherent separation from God, led her into a lifestyle of rebellion, homosexuality, drug use, porn addiction, and everything wicked,” according to her online biography.

But, the biography continues, her sins did not keep God from loving her.

Hill-Perry, 25, recently married and as a new mother, shared that testimony of how she believes God pursued her and helped her turn away from homosexuality and other sins for a Christian life in a recently-aired CBN interview.

In the 7-minute video of her interview, Hill-Perry tells how “around first grade” she began experiencing gender confusion, and eventually in her teens acted on her attraction to other women.

“I just distinctly remember wanting to be a boy, wanting to be the dominant role in any type of relationship,” she explains.

Even though she knew the same-sex attractions she was experiencing were “wrong,” as she put it, that knowledge did not stop her from pursing a relationship with another female in high school.

She eventually went on to have other girlfriends.

“I was having fun, but a deep soul satisfaction, I didn’t have that,” she says of her journey into the gay lifestyle.

Although she had been living far from God, Hill-Perry still knew about God, having been raised in church for the first 9 to 10 years of her life.

“I used to tell my girlfriends the truth,” she explains in the video. “Yeah, you know this is sin, right? [And they would be like] ‘well, why are you gay?'”

She didn’t have an answer for them, but she “was always in a constant state of conviction.”
