Former LGBT People Now Christians to Share Message of Jesus’ Love in LA
10-22-2018

CBN News Emily JonesA group of ex-LGBTQ people are getting ready to take the streets of 

Los Angeles, California to declare the transforming power and love of Jesus Christ.

The march takes place on Nov. 4 and will feature worship, praise, and testimonials from people who
call themselves former homosexual, bisexuals, and transgender individuals. Each person comes from
different parts of the country but all of them have the same message — there is freedom from sexual
confusion and sin through Jesus.

It is the second Freedom March since the first one in May, which took place in Washington D.C. It
featured two survivors of the Pulse nightclub shooting, who say they left behind their LGBT lifestyles
after the attack to have a transformative relationship with Jesus.

“Going through old pictures of the night of Pulse, I remember my struggles of perversion, heavy 

drinking to drown out everything and having promiscuous sex that led to HIV,” Luis Ruiz told CBN 
News.

“It wasn’t a gay to straight thing. It was a lost to a saved thing. Someone encountered me and told me
how much God would change me if I stopped doing it on my own strength. If I fall in love with Christ, 

He would do everything else,” he explained.

Jeffrey McCall, a former prostitute who lived as a transwoman named Scarlet, is the founder and 
CEO of the Freedom March.

He told CBN News he wants former LGBTQ people to have their voice heard. He wants the world to

know that you can change your lifestyle, no matter who you are.

“I wanted to have a march where everyone who came out of homosexual or transgender lives could 

come together, to have an event to hear each other’s stories and also to have an event to speak on the 
freedoms we found through Jesus Christ,” McCall said.
