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!

Get into his redeemed fierceness below:

I grew up in Lancaster, SC with Pastor Jovan or "Joe" as I know him. I can honestly say that he has always been a Minister and a very giving person. I am sad that it looks as if he wants to loose his creativity and deny who he his for Man's approval. If you no longer want to drag or be a house mother, that's fine. However Pastor, you do not have to deny who you are to Serve God and bless others. You can put on all the suits you want, but you are a Gay Black Man. Please do not make it seem like that is something to be ashamed of or if God can't use you as you are. I think you are a great Man Pastor "Joe," but honesty is the best policy. It's fine to be yourself and the person God has called you to be, they are really one in the same.

I agree people do stuff to please man. Apparently that's who he was from the beginning. These churches kill me with making people feel bad for be honest with themselves.

This has all the markings of one of those cheesy gospel stage plays. I swear the church continues to do a number on gay folks. It is sad that this guy does not celebrate his fierceness. I love your blog. Check out my site www.professorlocs.com and tell me if you would be interested in linking to each other. Keep writing and sharing!
