During that time she went to church and realized that many people there didn’t agree with that lifestyle.
Perry said, “At 19, God changed my life and sexuality.”
It was at that time where she had a relationship with God and sought out his word. Perry mentioned that she realized over time that the church didn’t know how to deal with talking about sexuality especially when someone is gay, but always spoke about marriage.
She felt at a time that the church made it seem that marriage was more powerful than God. During her interview she also discussed why she’s so transparent about her story as well as her book “Gay Girl, Good God.”
