A man who lived for 20 years as a transsexual prostitute and drag performer shared how God restored his identity as a man.
Testifying Saturday before those gathered for the Freedom March in Orlando, held at Lake Eola Park just a few minutes away from the Pulse nightclub — where in 2016 49 people were murdered in one of the worst mass shootings in the nation — Kevin Whitt was the last to share his story from the stage following hours of dynamic worship and testimonies of men and women who formerly lived and identified as LGBT.
The Freedom March-Orlando was hosted by Pulse nightclub shooting survivors Luis Javier Ruiz and Angel Colon.
Whitt, who hails from Dallas, recounted that he received Christ five and a half years ago but previously lived for 20 among the LGBT community. He started doing drag at age 16 and performing it at age 18; out of that life he began living as a woman named Dominique.
“I was raised in a very dysfunctional home, a broken home where my father was never around,” he recounted, noting that when his father was around he was physically, verbally, and sometimes sexually abusive.
“I never felt like I measured up. I never was manly enough,” he continued.
Thus, he decided to use his femininity for his own purposes. Though successful as a drag queen, he began prostituting as a transsexual woman, doing so for approximately 17 years.
“I slept with I don’t know how many men. I tried to count one time and it was around the number of 5000 men. Because I turned about 5 tricks a day, 7 days a week, add that up over the years. It’s a great [big] number.”
Upon getting two tests for HIV, both of which came back negative, he said to himself: “There has to be a God.”
From the outside things appeared glamorous.
