Founder of Ex-LGBTQ+ Group Admits to Having Gay Sex Again

Two men going in for a kiss

The founder of the “ex-gay” group Freedom March, Jeffrey McCall, has recently admitted to hooking up with several men since last year.

Freedom March has held ex-LGBTQ+ rallies across the U.S. They purport that turning to Jesus Christ will make LGBTQ+ straight or cisgender.

McCall has claimed to have previously identified as gay and as a trans woman before renouncing being LGBTQ+, according to Metro Weekly.

In a Facebook post last month McCall wrote:

Today I am going to share an extremely personal story. I want to share about my falling short of the glory of God. I never want to be someone who can’t share about my own struggles. In 2020 I met someone that I was trying to help (I was helping in other ways he didn’t deal with SSA) which lead to me being unfaithful to Jesus and giving my heart away. After denying what I wanted with him I then went on to fall sexually with a man when I felt wounded and lonely. This lead to multiple falls with men over time.

He added that he repented after each hookup.

McCall also wrote that after the past year his relationship with God is “even stronger.”

Metro Weekly reports that the post was discovered by Truth Wins Out, a group dedicated to fighting anti-LGBTQ religious extremism and the ex-LGBTQ+ movement.

“Jeffrey McCall is a self-serving con artist who runs a fraudulent organization that preys on vulnerable and desperate LGBTQ people who grow up in religious homes,” Truth Wins Out’s executive director Wayne Besen said in a statement, according to Metro Weekly.

“If McCall had an ounce of integrity he’d apologize for his rank hypocrisy and shut down his odious Freedom March racket before it ruins more lives. McCall’s own actions prove that he has no ability to “help” anyone, starting with himself,” Besen said. “It seems that the real message of the Freedom March is that copious amounts of closeted gay sex is okay, as you feel bad about it and pray after each encounter. This is a tragic, pathological, toxic group that spews dangerous lies into our society.”

McCall and his group reportedly went to Washington, D.C. to speak out against LGBTQ+ conversion therapy bans and other LGBTQ+ rights.

The so-called therapy has been proven detrimental to queer people’s mental and emotional health. Twenty states across the country already have some form of the ban in place.
