Christian rock star Trey Pearson will
perform at next weekend's Columbus LGBT Pride festival.
The 35-year-old lead singer of Everyday
Sunday came out gay last week in a letter first published by the
Religious News Service.
During an appearance on ABC's The
View, Pearson discussed growing up in a home and church “where
I was taught that God hated homosexuality.”

In an interview with gay glossy The
Advocate, Pearson said that his coming out journey was
mentored by Rob Bell, a progressive Christian author and former
minister. Pearson recalled Bell saying, “The truth is the safest
place in the universe.”
Pearson is currently working on an
album slated for the fall. He'll perform Friday, June 17 at Columbus
