'Christian Rocker' Who Came Out as 'Gay' to Perform at Pride Festival
A self-identifying Christian rock band whose lead singer came out as homosexual this week and was applauded by several other professing Christian musicians, has now announced that it will be performing at a festival this month celebrating "gay pride."
Everyday Sunday's Trey Pearson, 35, released a letter to fans on Monday to explain that he had been struggling with feelings for the same gender for the past 20 years and recently decided to no longer stifle the struggle. The band is known for its songs "Find Me Tonight," "Wake Up! Wake Up!" and "Best Night of Our Lives."
He told Religion News Service this week that he has studied the Scriptures and does not believe that they prohibit homosexuality.
"There is absolutely no conflict with accepting who I am and following Jesus," Pearson said. "God wants me to be healthy, authentic, whole, integrated and my truest self."
Several professing Christian artists quickly applauded Pearson online, with Nichole Nordeman Tweeting, "Sending you lots of love today, Trey," and worship artist Vicky Beeching, who came out as a lesbian in 2014, writing, "Deeply impressed by the courage of American Christian musician @treypearson as he takes the brave step to come out."
Singer Clay Aiken, who came out as homosexual in 2008, also praised Pearson, posting, "Moving and honest! And a powerful example to many who are in the same place. Congratulations @treypearson #Godislove."
Pearson said that he now wants to be a voice for "gay Christians," and is scheduled to perform at the Christian-billed Wild Goose Festival in North Carolina in July. Event organizers are supportive of homosexuality and transgenderism.
