McClurkin – perhaps not so Ex-Gay after all

Clay Cane claims to have an exclusive interview with an ex-lover of Donnie McClurkin. I don’t know if it’s legit, but here’s a bit:

How long were you guys being sexual?
Off and on for three years, 2001 to 2004.

During this time to 2001 to 2004 is really the height of his anti-gay rants. The book came out, he made comments, he told the New York Times in 2002 he’s counseling adolescent boys to convert them from homosexuality. Would you hear about these rants?

Every time I’d read an article in Ebony or Jet, or whatever, I’d just hear it—I’d get upset and we’d always have an argument about it. He said, “I told you.” I said, “It’s crazy. What you’re doing is crazy. You’re writing this stuff, but yet you’re still doing it.” I said, “I have a problem with that. What’s wrong with you?” He said, “I have a problem.”

What do you think he meant by “I have a problem”?
It’s something he just can’t control. He feels that he has to say that to please people. He said, “I don’t want people to believe that I’m still doing it.”

I know that McClurkin has said some things that are pretty nasty about gay people, but he’s far from the worst. And he’s not – to my knowledge – lent his name to political campaigns or supported draconian laws.

If the claims in this interview are true, McClurkin has my pity. That does not sound like a happy way to live.
