Jeffrey McCall, the founder of “ex-gay” group Freedom March, has come out as a transgender woman.

CHANGED Movement, a network formed for Christians “who left their LGBTQ identity behind,” made the announcement on their website.

“Here at CHANGED, we are saddened by [McCall’s] public announcement to return to the identity of Scarlett,” they wrote. “At the same time, we refuse to believe that God is finished. Jeffrey is a friend and someone of great value to us and to God. There could be many reasons he has returned to the identity of Scarlett, and we continue to speak privately with him and pray for him as a team.”

McCall created a Facebook page as well, under the name Scarlett Mccall. On some posts, it has people begging for her to “come back.”

This is the same person who admitted to having multiple sexual encounters with men since 2020 while holding ex-gay rallies claiming the “grace and power of Jesus Christ can free LGBT people.”

“In 2020 I met someone that I was trying to help … which led to me being unfaithful to Jesus and giving my heart away,” McCall wrote. “After denying what I wanted with him, I then went on to fall sexually with a man when I felt wounded and lonely. This led to multiple falls with men over time.”

She claimed that after the sexual encounters, she had “grown so much spiritually” and that moving on made her “relationship with the Lord … even stronger.”

Truth Wins Out, an organization dedicated to fighting the anti-gay movement, called McCall a “hypocritical fraud” and demanded that Freedom March be “permanently shut down,” according to Metro Weekly.

When McCall was sharing her story, she said that she had lived as a gay male sex worker and then as a transgender woman before renouncing her sexuality and gender identity and founding Freedom March, according to Metro Weekly in 2021.

“Jeffrey McCall is a self-serving con artist who runs a fraudulent organization that preys on vulnerable and desperate LGBTQ people who grow up in religious homes,” Truth Wins Out’s Executive Director Wayne Besen said, according to Metro Weekly.

Freedom March is the same group that visited Washington, D.C. to oppose conversion therapy bans and LGBT rights in 2021, Metro Weekly reported.

Conversion therapy, which is a practice to change one’s sexual orientation using extreme methods, has been found to be detrimental to the mental health of LGBTQ people subjected to it.

The United Nations urged a global ban on conversion therapy, labeling it “cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment.”

Transgender children are four times more likely to attempt suicide because of it, according to a study by Jama Network in 2019.
