Jackie Hill-Perry was born Jackie Hill on June 21, 1989, in St. Louis. She grew up in a fatherless household and experienced sexual abuse at the age of five. Hill’s upbringing instilled her with a knowledge of God, and she attended church until she was ten. However, her encounter with sexual abuse, combined with school bullying and a lack of attention from boys contributed to her struggle with gender dysphoria. Since the age of four, Hill felt as though she should have been born a boy, and at age six she started imitating male tendencies, such as standing up to use the toilet. At age 17, she started pursuing multiple serial sexual relationships with women. Hill’s second girlfriend suggested that she be a stud, a woman who takes the masculine role in a lesbian relationship. Hill explains that I was never the ‘cute chick’ but when I became a stud, it seemed like every girl wanted me. I would be in straight clubs and have girls throwing themselves at me. For a girl that’s insecure and craves to feel loved, that was like a drug for me. Frequenting gay clubs and gay pride parades, Hill became caught up in a life of drug and pornography addiction, and rebellion. However, in October 2008, she converted to Christianity and turned away from her previous lifestyle. As recounted in her poem “My Life as a Stud”, Hill states that “one day, the Lord spoke to me. He said, ‘She will be the death of you.’ At that moment, the scripture for the wages of sin equal death finally clicked.” Hill left her girlfriend, returned to the church, and started writing poetry.

She performed her first spoken word piece at a P4CM poetry conference in 2010 and met Preston Perry, the man who would eventually become her husband. Over time, Hill gradually lost interest in women, and Preston proposed to her in August 2013 through the spoken word poem “The Covenant”.The couple married in March 2014 and now has two daughters. Hill-Perry attributes that change in her sexuality to God’s transformation of her life. Record label Humble Beast announced on January 7, 2014, that it had signed Hill-Perry as an artist. She has appeared as a guest musician on several Christian hip hop recordings, including Because You Asked by Swoope and Instruments of Mercy by Beautiful Eulogy. Her debut album, The Art of Joy, was produced by Beautiful Eulogy and released on November 4, 2014, Hill-Perry is also a staff member of the Legacy Movement ministry.
In 2016, she, alongside JGivens and John Givez, was featured on Lecrae’s “Misconceptions 3” from the album Church Clothes 3.
Jackie Hill-Perry maintains that she is an ex-lesbian and that her transition to heterosexuality is among the changes God worked in her life. On July 31, 2013, Christian hip hop radio show Wade-O Radio published an interview with Hill-Perry where she spoke out against the Macklemore song “Same Love” Citing 1 The word of God itself, apart from Jackie Hill, testifies that people can change. So if the word of God is the word of God, then we need to deal with that and believe that it’s true. I think we’ve made God very little if we believe that he cannot change people. If he can make a moon, stars and a galaxy that we have yet to fully comprehend, how can he not simply change my desires? Corinthians 6:9-11, she stated that.
