George Rekers Is a Homosexual, Escort Says

George Rekers and "Lucien" at MIA.
The male escort hired by anti-gay activist George Alan Rekers has told Miami New Times the Baptist minister is a homosexual who paid him to provide body rubs once a day in the nude, during their ten-day vacation in Europe.

Rekers allegedly named his favorite maneuver the "long stroke" -- a complicated caress "across his penis, thigh... and his anus over the butt cheeks," as the escort puts it. "Rekers liked to be rubbed down there," he says.

In his first interview since New Times broke the story Tuesday, the 20-year-old escort, who prefers to go by the name Lucien, contradicts Rekers's contentions that he hired the escort to help carry his luggage and that he was trying to save the soul of a lost sinner.

Although Rekers does have physical ailments that make it difficult for him to haul suitcases, Lucien wasn't hired to carry luggage on their European vacation, the escort says.

"It's a situation where he's going against homosexuality when he is a homosexual," Lucien says. (When New Times called seeking comment, Rekers had turned his phone off. An email was not returned. He has termed the New Times article "slanderous" on his website.)

Lucien was interviewed late last night in the Fort Lauderdale house where he was laying low for the evening. The townhome he rents in a west Miami suburb has been inundated by uninvited guests since Unzipped revealed Lucien's identity first (link NSFW).

Rekers's trip with Lucien has grabbed worldwide headlines and been the subject of monologues by Steven Colbert and Jay Leno.

Lucien decided to speak out after a heart-to-heart with a friend, Michael, who alerted him to the grim realities of his client's anti-gay activities. Lucien, who had originally declined to speak about the trip, now says he can do little good by protecting his erstwhile, fundamentalist client.

In the past 24 hours, Rekers, a board member at the National Association for Research & Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH) and cofounder of the Family Research Council, has claimed he took Lucien to Europe to inspire him to accept Jesus into his heart and renounce his homosexuality.

Lucien now offers Rekers a counterproposal: "In all honesty, he should disassociate himself from these [anti-gay] groups."

New Times spent more than three hours with Lucien in the wee hours of Thursday morning. Check back this afternoon for stories detailing the trip, the document Rekers asked Lucien to prepare in the hopes of preventing any future disclosures, and a character sketch of what we think is a brave kid -- one who dawdled for less than 24 hours before opting to tell an exceptionally painful story.

 You don't have to really look far if you love kids. Babysitting is one of the favorite and easy to do jobs around. You can also seek out organizations which are into what you're into. Like museums, if you are into the arts, you can try out becoming a tour guide. If you have an advocacy, you can try charitable institutions and offer your skills in maybe, data encoding or a gofer. The hospitals are also a venue where you can be a candy striper.

Who notified him to the harsh facts of his customer's anti-gay actions. Lucien, who had initially dropped to talk about the journey, now says he can do little excellent by defending his erstwhile, fundamentalist customer.

I am a survivor of KAMP UCLA and the German Body Mechanics..... I would like to tell my story but before I do, I want to say THANK YOU LUCIEN...you are brave, you are my hero, you have nothing to fear....you actually helped me to now tell MY story, one that also goes back to UCLA, where today they, the brass, won't admit what was done to me there at 8:00p.m. Sunday May 31, 1991. They nearly murdered me.... Myt novel is in the works now. Lucien, that 'Quack' who your 'Quack' mentioned reviewed Mr. Murphy's chart, the dead dr.., well, turns out I have a hunch that was reference to a Dr. Szuba - google: Szuba / Death / UCLA and hit the first link, then the third headline. . . this creep was my 'quack' too...before the UCLA PD and LAPD (6) and 4 docs raped me with neuroleptics and tortured me for 6 days for my benies ($2k/day)....I got myself out of hell....barely. Lucien - YOUR testimony was my missing piece/link. Most of the other survivors are gone.... google also: UCLA / NPI / wrongful death LA Weekly article..... that was almost me. I would like to speak to you and thank you on the phone. I am str8 but this is one human thanking another for his bravery. I am here at 208 841 2591 or trevor.hitchin@gmail.com if you see this and when things settle. Again, I have a new Hero to add to my list - YOU. namaste - 777 TDH "white buffalo"

Who is George Rekers and why should I care?

Even if he is an anti-gay activist, you should probably forget him. When you argue with fools, from a distance, people can't tell who is who...

George Rekers is one EVIL son-of-a-bitch. If there is a hell, may he burn in it for all eternity.

That young man ought to be ashamed of himself, charging that much money to carry suitcases for a poor old man. He could've hire some undocumented worker for a fraction of what he paid him. And what does he get for trying to help out this sinner by bringing the light of Jesus our Lord and Savior into his heart? He gets accused of being a homotesticle. Outrageous. People have no respect for their elders anymore.

Rekers, has claimed he took Lucien to Europe to inspire him to accept Jesus into his heart and renounce his homosexuality.

And

Rekers said he did not know he was a prostitute until midway through the vacation.

so which is it Rekers ?

The fact is Reckers hired a male prostitute from a gay web site to travel with him to Europe and his story changes every time he tells it.

I hope and pray that Lucien makes enough cash from this that he will never have to be in a situation to escort again.The question is not about Lucien or his morals, he was approached and hired by George Rekers. I find it a crime that people like Rekers are out there spewing hate and damnation from their mouths. While we still have youth killing themselves because they are fearful of who they are . That their friends or parents might hate them as much for coming out. We need to stop and hold people like Rekers accountable for the damage they are doing to our youth.Don't forget to grown men and women who can't adopt in the state of Florida like myself and the children awaiting adoption too.

I feel sorry for the escort. He obviously doesn't want any part of this mess. However, with his "assets" published worldwide now, I bet he has little difficulty getting clients now! You could never pay for this much advertising!

so the million dollar question here is "Do you think Reker had a good fuck? Was the money he paid to the prostituty worth it?" Reker should evaluate Lucien in the rentboy.com website. We would like to know if Lucien is really really good.

FOR GEORGE REKER - you work it work it grandmama - the sweetest thing ever - come out come out grandmama - you do that thing grandmama you go grandmama - sweet hot macaroni and cheeseeee ehhhhhh yum yum yum ahhhh prrrtttt prrrtttt prrtttt - was that a fart ? too much macaroni and cheeseyyy!!!!!

Yet more proof....NARTH are criminals. You can NOT turn a gay man straight. It's impossible and NARTH is full of lies and psuedo science. Nothing better than snake venom peddlers.

There is not one credible case of converstion therapy to display. NARTH Psychiatrist are a scam!

AA - Rekers didn't "have to live in hiding like that." It was a choice. Yes, it was a choice inspired by fear of vicious anti-gay bigots like himself, but a choice nonetheless.

I feel it is crucial that we remember the place of moral agency here - coming out has been difficult for most LGBT people, and has had and continues to have horrible personal, occupational and psychological costs for many, and yet they choose honesty. Rekers not only chose to hide, he chose to attack, then he chose to make his entire professional career a relentless attack on us.

I actually had merciful feelings for him myself until yesterday when I read about some of the horrifying anti-gay experiments and studies he conducted at UCLA decades ago. Those children - some as young as 3, were psychologically tortured and driven to hysteria, with their parents instructed to intentionally reject them. Rekers is a monster.

Thank you, Lucien for exposing this piece of Christian White Trash hipocrisy for what it really is. Christianity from the Catholics to the scummy Baptists is a reservoir of opportunism, exploitation,oppression and deceit. Let's root these scum out and dispose of them.

"Rekers, a board member at the National Association for Research & Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH) and cofounder of the Family Research Council, has claimed he took Lucien to Europe to inspire him to accept Jesus into his heart and renounce his homosexuality." Yes, that is why he got the homo rub downs every day... what a hypocrite!!!!

Rekers joins the endless parade of self hating gays. These pathetic souls seek to hide their own secret lives, and sooth their own boundless guilt, by making life miserable for others...straight and gay. Self rightousness should always be suspect, since it too often is a coverup of for an agenda of selfish hate. To all you "holier than Thou" folks...Thou dost protest way too much!!

Hookers/Escorts/massage escorts are entrepeneurs. If they are smart enough to do the marketing, set their price, and keep their client accounts active, they are more proactive than most people that sit in a cubicle. Of course Lucien would at first protect his client--and probably still is because of draconian prostitution laws.

GOOD for Lucien! Boo for the Christian creep!

I haven't seen anywhere on any of the blogs or news site's that Lucien has been asking or offered any money for his story, he is however being pressured by Rekers to deny deny deny, even though he's already given a very indepth interview about the trip, and how Rekers found him on Rentboy.com Jo-Vanni please do NOT let the negative or insulting comments here keep you from continuing to be honest and open about what happened with you and George Rekers. Exposing his lying and utter hypocrisy about how he represented himself to you does not make you the bad guy at all! Thank you for being brave enough to speak out.

I don't see "Lucien" as a hero...perhaps brave for stepping up and pointing out the hypocrites that clothe themselves in righteousness & holier-than-thou attitudes. Money is money...which is why I assume he didn't turn down an all-expenses paid trip. A hero would've exposed this fake player from the start.

At least we know, unlike how people usually refer to "rentboys", that he has a conscience and/or a soul...getting paid by one of Satan's uncles didn't sit well with him, apparently.

I'm glad this story has been picked up in the MSM...the rank 'n file "married/straight" men who are closeted, yet use gay men for their pleasure, only to run back home to the wifey/girlfriend and shake their fingers at the "evil homosexuals" while having the penis-that-is-not-their-own in every orifice are really a turnoff to me, and I'm tired of the gay "community" allowing guys like this to get their rocks off, while they try to ship us off to concentration camps, legislate us away, or worse.

It is well known that homophobia is a form of homosexuality.

Real heterosexuals do not think much about homosexuals, or care much one way or the other....it is the self hating homosexuals that attack other homosexuals.

Think about it.

Next time you hear someone talking about sinful homosexuals, you are listening to a homosexual.

jessie,they haven't posted anything because Rekers & the young male have both agreed there was no sexual contact. i read on another site a quote from the young man that Rekers never paid him enough to do anything sexual. I have no clue what to believe here. Sad situation for all parties involved.

I applaud Lucien for exposing this sorry excuse for a lying Christian man. By his actions, he has proven that his being an anti-gay activist is a sham just to mask the fact that he is gay himself and he knew it!

In fact, that probably the majority of these anti-gay idiots. They protest anything to positive or helpful to the gay community, but secretly and behind closed doors will go down on a penis or happily take it up the butt and hopes no one will find out.

And of course, they'll moan about one of their own being caught with a female prostitute or a domanatrix and will do work to bring him back to the fold. But a gay prostitute is a different thing (remember Ted Haggard!).

I have no use for these SOB's! May they rot in their HELL!!!

Whatever Lucien did or didn't do is unimportant. He contracted out his services so he is just one more self employed young man. Good for him, and kudos for any help in exposing this lying hypocrite. "Reverend Reker" should be so publicly humiliated that he can never appear in public again. He and the rest of his ilk should be publicly and politically destroyed as payback for the damage they have done to gays and lesbians.

how do we all feel about young men prostituting themselves?

The real question should be: how do we feel about grown middle-age men prostituting themselves? For a man to be paid $87,000 to lie in court and defame a whole class of perfectly happy, well adjust men and women is an act of indescribable cowardlyness. As a member of a government imposed second class citizens, I view his acts as no more and no less than a war time traitor esposusing propaganda for the enemy whose sworn goal is to eradicate us by any means possible. Forgiveness is not an option. His condemnation in the court of public oppinion will be his sentence for a life time -- a pariah to former compatriots and an identifiable fool to those brothers and sisters he betrayed ... as well as to himself. My last thought is to say that prostitution too often exacts a heavy cost on those who sell their bodies for cash. I wonder if Rekers will ever weigh the pros and cons of the consequenses of his actions and come to grips with the harm he's done in is former professional life?

What would he do with his life now when you put all of this real name and pictures? You are ruining a young life for your own revenge against this hypocrite...
