‘Christian Rocker’ Left Wife, Children After Embracing Homosexuality

“I want to see my church change. I want to see our denomination change,” Pearson said.

“I have been suppressing these attractions and feelings since adolescence,” he said. “Trying not to be gay has only led to a desire for intimacy in friendships which pushed friends away, and it has resulted in a marriage where I couldn’t love or satisfy my wife in a way that she needed.”

 

During an appearance on ABC’s “The View” on Friday, Everyday Sunday’s Trey Pearson, who released a letter last week to fans in which he came out as a homosexual, outlined that he has left his wife after deciding to no longer fight against having feelings for men.

As previously reported, Pearson, known for the hit songs “Find Me Tonight,” “Wake Up! Wake Up!” and “Best Night of Our Lives,” wrote in his public letter that he has come to believe that he has been wrong for subduing his emotions.

“I have been suppressing these attractions and feelings since adolescence,” he said. “Trying not to be gay has only led to a desire for intimacy in friendships which pushed friends away, and it has resulted in a marriage where I couldn’t love or satisfy my wife in a way that she needed.”
Pearson said that he doesn’t believe that change is possible.

“I am never going to be able to change how I am, and no matter how healthy our relationship becomes, it’s never going to change what I know deep down: that I am gay,” he stated. On “The View” on Friday, Pearson suggested that he divorced his wife and moved out, as he referred to his wife of seven years as his “ex-wife,” and said that he meets with her and his two children once a week. He was asked by guest co-host LaLa Anthony if he was dating, and replied that he wanted to wait a year before entering into a relationship with a man.

“I am not dating. I decided when I was going through all of this to take at least a year just to get to know myself as a gay person—to know this knew part of me, before I start getting to know who somebody else is in that sort of way,” he replied.

“My ex-wife and my two beautiful kids, we share every week, we hang out every week, we have dinner together as a family every week,” Pearson continued. “And that’s where my focus is. My focus is on being who I need to be for them, being healthy for them, and being healthy for myself. That way I can be healthy for other people.”
