    A woman who came out of the closet and simultaneously escaped the Church of Scientology is now detailing the horrific incidents that occurred while she was a member of the controversial organization.

    Michelle LeClair details her experiences in the new memoir Perfectly Clear. Once considered the “poster girl” for Scientology, she soon became one of its worst enemies.

    With the Church’s celebrity clientele and hefty price tag per each mandatory course, LeClair was not swayed. In fact, she spent over $5 million to absorb the Church’s teachings.

    She had developed a successful career as a proprietor of an insurance business valued in the millions. But what she didn’t bet on was the anti-LGBTQ discrimination she would ultimately face by being her authentic self – and the escape that would soon follow her disclosure.

    WAMC "The Roundtable": Michelle LeClair's New Memoir About Her Escape From Scientology

    For years, Michelle LeClair, former President of Scientology's international humanitarian organization, tried to reconcile her sexual orientation with the anti-gay ideology of the church. Michelle finally ended her marriage, found the love of her life, a woman, and ultimately left the Church.

    But the split comes at a price. Her once pristine reputation is publicly dragged through the mud, the police raid her home, her ex-husband tries to gain full custody of their children, and the multi-million dollar business she built from scratch is destroyed.

    In her new memoir, "Perfectly Clear," Michelle LeClair offers an insider's perspective on Scientology's pervasive influence, secret rituals, and ruthless practices for keeping members in line.

    Book Review: "Perfectly Clear: Escaping Scientology and Fighting for the Woman I Love."

    The Windy City Times bills itself as the voice of Chicago's Gay, Lebian, Bi, Trans and Queer community since 1985.

    Windy City Times: BOOK REVIEW Perfectly Clear

    * * * * * BEGIN CONCLUSION * * * * *

    For those like me, who are endlessly fascinated by this cult of the heart, mind and wallet, some of LeClair's details aren't new. You can't read a Wikipedia article on Scientology without learning about e-meters, silent births and Tom Cruise. What makes Perfectly Clear unique is its queer perspective. Even Haggis, one of the first celebrity ex-members to speak out against the church, can't give a personal account of what its like to be in a forbidden relationship as a Scientologist. LeClair can, and LeClair does. Even those who've read and seen Going Clear, or are familiar with Leah Remini's various anti-Scientology outlets, will be shocked by LeClair's experiences and Scientology's influence on powerful LA organizations such as the police and the district attorney's office.

    Though LeClair's copious exclamation points get a little old, Perfectly Clear is a fast, fascinating read from the perspective of a gay Scientologist who survived — but just barely.
