In January 2014, Jackie was signed by Humble Beast record label as an artist. Jackie Hill also performs for the Passion 4 Christ Movement (P4CM). The gospel artiste is part of a worldwide tour called “Poets in Autumn”.
The sexual abuse Jackie Hill faced as a child was part of the reason she struggled with gender confusion growing up.
She was bullied in school and didn’t get a lot of attention from boys, all of which added to her gender confusion as she felt she should have been a boy and began imitating the lifestyle of boys until she eventually became a stud. At the age of seventeen, Jackie Perry discovered she was a lesbian. She entered into a series of relationships with different women. However, she gave her life to Christ in 2004 and has since remained a minister of the gospel.
