Former ‘Satanic Drag Queen’ to receive ‘Ex-Gay of the Year’ Award

Tuesday, September 10, 2013

Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver won’t be the only person honored at this year’s Ex-Gay Awareness Month festivities. The event’s organizers, Voice of the Voiceless, announced today that a former “Satanic Drag Queen” will receive their “Courage Award.”

Trace McNutt said in an interview with ex-gay leader Christopher Doyle that he became involved in drag when he learned that “the rock stars and the royalty of the gay world were the drag queens” and as a result turned into “an alien, sexual deviant creation…satanic version of a drag queen.”

After battling drug addiction and homelessness, he realized that homosexuality was a choice and started attending church where “some of the most masculine, butchest men reached into my life and loved me.”

  24. They should call it the “I’m Back in the Closet” award. Ex-gays are just gays who couldn’t deal with the guilt & shame our society unfortunately lays on us. You have to be strong to be gay!

  27. I am un-liking this page because of this garbage. Being gay is NOT a choice. I was absolutely born gay and I can’t believe this would be shared. Stuff like this spreads ignorance and hate. You CANNOT choose to be straight, just like you cannot choose to be gay.

    Posted on Tuesday, September 10, 2013 at 10:34pm
  31. It wouldn’t really be a problem if it was a personal thing. I think what is wrong with this concept is that they are trying to push it as a solution for all gays. If the video was about how he chose his religion over his sexual desires, i wouldn’t care, but alas it was a “this decision made me happy so every has to do it” which I can’t really get behind.

    Posted on Tuesday, September 10, 2013 at 10:38pm
  32. I laughed & laughed, & kept watching for The Onion logo on the bottom of the screen but it never showed up, which made it even more hysterical.

  42. I don’t understand the negative reactions against reporting this on an LGBT page. The point is to show that there are still many wackos out there that think being gay is a choice. We need to call these assholes out when we become aware of them.

  43. To everyone who’s been driven away: You should’ve known that they were shining a light of ridicule on Mat Staver’s awards, not promoting them!

  44. This is the biggest crock of bullshit I’ve ever seen. He lost his job, car, home and became homeless because he was a coke head who couldn’t function. Not because of being gay, I’m sure the same thing would have happened if he were straight, yes WERE because you are in fact…still gay. He obviously isn’t the picture of motivation, so no wonder why he lost all of his shit.

Those poor people are confused and need to listen to their hearts rather than the dumb idiots that are trying to make them conform to their belief of what is “normal”. I’m not gay and I say either you’re gay or you’re not, there’s no switching back and forth between the two extremes.

  60. If that’s what makes him happy. Then let me propose this question…if you choose to be gay, then choose to be straight, that’s makes you fucked up not EX anything.

  61. LMFAO!!!! Give him a year or two and he’ll be right back in the fold. You can’t change what you were born to be. They simply have brainwashed him and his attraction to “some of the most masculine, butchest men reached into my life and loved me” will get him in the end. :P

  63. Its okay for someone to make a “choice” to see opposite sex..it is NOT okay however to sit there and say its some kind of problem..like its a disease..they need help..that’s just..really? :l Also, I am pansexual and my family life was fairly normal, no abuse or anything..my mother was extremely loving and caring. I believe that someone IS born how they are..its not by choice..I just sorta evolved into who I am. I have always been different from others.

Way to use a false statement to cover up being a hateful prick with no eyebrows.

    Posted on Wednesday, September 11, 2013 at 3:02pm
  81. Yes, Tuffi it is his testimony and he is a person. He is, in a nutshell saying he “was” gay and turned to drag as an outlet and in turn made him get addicted to drugs and lose everything. DO NOT blame the gay/drag community for his demise in life. HE chose to do the drugs and in the end, THAT was what caused his life to fall apart. We all know that had he been “straight” his path would have been the same, a drug addict.

    Posted on Wednesday, September 11, 2013 at 4:25pm
  82. Ex-gay man= Person attracted to the same sex, but decides to either stay celibate and ignore their same sex attraction, or marry some love starved straight girl and fantasize about hot, sexy men while making love with said girl. If society did not make gay youth feel like freaks and sinners, drug use among these young gays would decrease substantially.

  83. Gotta love idiots …. the guy was crying for attention from coming out the closet to be a satanist drag … and not to being an ex gay … he is getting what he wants attention … he is probably still sucking dick in a closet somewhere …. and all the bible thumpers are eating it up

  88. It’s obvious that this man has attention issues. He even stated that becoming a Drag Queen and made him the star he always wanted to be.Due to his drug abuse he probably had a failing Drag career! he was probably offered a position promoting his sexuality change and viewed this at another attempt for fame. FAIL!!!

    Posted on Wednesday, September 11, 2013 at 9:56pm
  95. All people like this are doing is trading one addiction for another. That is the common thread with all “ex gays” that I have come across. Their “testimonies” are all the same. They grew up feeling “different” or were abused and in late teens or early adulthood turned into hardcore partiers with lots of sexual partners. When they decide to go through “therapy”, they find Jesus and THAT becomes the addiction. They’re still addicts. And delusional. I’d like to see this kind of “therapy” made illegal. They need treatment for addiction, not being gay.

  96. Drag shows are to women and transwomen as the Minstrel Shows were to black folks.

  97. I’m sorry but there is no such thing as ex-gay. Sexual orientation cannot repeat cannot be changed. You can have therapy, you can have as much medical care body changes, etc. that you want done but orientation cannot be changed. It’s not possible.
