Married Christian Rock band founder reveals he is gay

Founding member of Christian rock group 'Everyday Sunday', 35 year old Trey Pearson, who is married with two children has come out as being gay.

In a recent letter to his fans he revealed that not everything is as it seems. The Christian Rocker stunned fans across the world earlier this week, admitting he’s been attracted to men since he was a teen.

He wrote in a letter posted on the Religious News Service’s website on May 31st, that he was always taught that sexuality was a matter of “choice” and that he “never wanted to be gay”.
“To make an extremely long story short, I have come to be able to admit to myself, and to my family, that I am gay.”

The letter reads:

“I was scared of what God would think and what all of these people I loved would think about me; so it never was an option for me. I have been suppressing these attractions and feelings since adolescence. I’ve tried my whole life to be straight. I married a girl, and I even have two beautiful little kids. 

My daughter, Liv, is six and my son, Beckham, is two. I had always romanticized the idea of falling in love with a woman; and having a family had always been my dream. In many ways, that dream has come true. But I have also come to realize a lot of time has passed in my life pushing away, blocking out and not dealing with real feelings going on inside of me. 

I have tried not to be gay for more than 20 years of my life. I found so much comfort as a teen in 1 Samuel 18-20 and the intimacy of Jonathan and David. I thought and hoped that such male intimacy could fulfill that void I felt in my desire for male companionship. I always thought if I could find these intimate friendships, then that would be enough.”
