This is the kinda stuff the Black church lives for. Paging Donnie McClurkin.
I honestly don't even know where to begin with this one. I'm still trying to figure out if the story of Pastor Ja'Von Crockett is real or a left over sketch found on the cutting room floor of the In Living Color Studios from 1993.
Here's his story in his own words:
At the age of seven I had many childhood experiences that led me into a lifestyle that the world may not understand. I had a neighborhood friend who happened to be a girl that I played with on a regular basis. She and I would often play with each others toys. I became fond of her Easy Bake Oven, Barbie Dolls and jump ropes, while she played with my GI Joe's and Armymen. Her toys became my preference and little did I know that this was the beginning of a life all too familiar to some. I felt like a girl, but in a boys body.
At the age of eight I had been exposed to a lifestyle that would hold my attention for over the next thirty years. Yes, thirty long years. Oddly enough, I met a preacher that expoesed me to the gay lifestyle. Yes. You heard me right. He was a preacher but he was gay. I saw and did things at the age of eight that would cause my parents to hate the very person that they should have respected, the preacher. Behind closed doors I met many preachers that were living gay and bisexual lifestyles.
From a fierce drag mother to a "very straight" preacher. Pastor Crockett has taken to local Atlanta TV stations to tell his story along with a supportive male friend and isn't shy about showing his past ball videos where he received 10'S across the board.
Lawd I can't!
