As we reported, Katy Perry was brought up in deeply religious family. And she was attracted to girls. These two concepts are hardly combining, that is why Katy’s mom and dad tried to get rid of her homosexual attractions by ‘conversation therapy’ methods and creating a gay-free surrounding for her. But she was too curious and asked questions about that party of the world she did not see. And she is grateful to God that she was born so curious and it helps her to understand that the world is not black and white.Previously she said that she had struggled with her sexuality and balancing it with religion, to the extent that she tried to “pray the gay away in my Jesus camps”. “My first words were ‘mama’ and ‘dada, ‘God’ and ‘Satan,’” she explained. “Right and wrong were taught to me on felt boards and, of course, through the glamorous Jan Crouch crying diamond teardrops every night on that Vaseline-TBN television screen.“When I was growing up, homosexuality was synonymous with the word ‘abomination’ … and hell. A place of gnashing of teeth, continual burning of skin and probably Mike Pence’s ultimate guest list for a barbecue. No way, no way. I wanted the pearly gates and unlimited fro-yo toppings.” The singer asked: “How was I going to reconcile that with a gospel singing girl raised in youth groups that were pro-conversion camps? What I did know was I was curious and even then I knew sexuality wasn’t as black and white as this dress. And honestly, I haven’t always gotten it right, but in 2008 when that song came out I knew that I started a conversation and a lot of the world seemed curious enough to sing along, too.”
