Pastor and Mayor Bubba Copeland

A Baptist pastor and the mayor of a small town in Alabama took his own life after having photos of him dressed in drag as part of a transgender alternate identity were posted online.

On November 3rd, F.L. “Bubba” Copeland died by suicide just days after an exposé outing his secret life was posted on a conservative blogging site. 

Despite Copeland pleading with the outlet not to publish the story – which included numerous photos and posts from his previously-undiscovered social media accounts – they did anyway.  

Now, the community he once served is grieving. They're also looking for answers as to why their pastor and mayor was outed against his will, and are trying to better understand his secret identity. 

Secret Life in a Small Town

By all accounts, Bubba Copeland was a loyal public servant. He served as the mayor of Smiths Station, Alabama, and as pastor of the nearby First Baptist Church of Phenix City.

Unlike some of his peers, according to sources familiar with the matter, Copeland had no track record of giving anti-LGBTQ+ sermons, nor has he supported or advanced any anti-LGBTQ+ legislation as mayor.

It would appear that few, if any, residents in the small community of less than 7,000 knew of his double life online.

That all changed following his outing by the Alabama-based blogging site.

Outed Against His Will

Prior to publication, Copeland pleaded with the website not to publish details of his alternate identity. 

“It’s a hobby I do to relieve stress. I have a lot of stress, and I’m not medically transitioning. It’s just a bit of a character I’m playing. I don’t go out and seek solicitation or anything like that,” he argued. “It’s private. I don’t do it in the public or anything like that. It’s just a fictional character I made up to relieve stress.”

Copeland argued that his private life was not any business of his constituents or parishioners. “Does this have any effect on me being mayor, that I sometimes put on a dress or sometimes put on makeup? Does that have anything to do whatsoever with me being mayor or being a pastor?” he asked.

Despite his pleadings, on November 1st, the site published images taken from Copeland’s secret Reddit account. The images included numerous photos of himself in drag and taking on the identity of a transgender woman. 

A Final Sermon

Following the publication, Copeland gave a sermon from the pulpit at his church. “The article is not who or what I am … I apologize for any embarrassment caused by my private and personal life that has become public. This will not cause my life to change. This will not waiver my devotion to my family, serving my city, serving my church,” Copeland said.

He then read from the 23rd Psalm telling parishioners, “God will always protect you, take care of you,” Copeland said. “He will see you through anything, absolutely anything.”

On November 3rd, Lee County deputies responded to a welfare check call for Copeland. When they arrived on the scene, he took his own life with a firearm. 

A Community in Mourning

Copeland’s community appears heartbroken by his suicide.

One of Copeland’s friends, former Phenix City School Superintendent Dr. Larry DiChiara, expressed his anger on Facebook.

“I am so angry right now and heartbroken,” he wrote. “I witnessed a good man be publicly ridiculed and crucified over the last few days to the point that he just took his own life today.” 

“I just want to ask you people who thought it humorous to publicly ridicule him: Are you happy now? What crime did he commit?”

Many commenters on the First Baptist Church of Phenix City expressed similar sentiments.

A cross has been placed on the church lawn for those who may wish to place flowers/memorial in remembrance.

Posted by First Baptist Church of Phenix City on Saturday, November 4, 2023

As one woman wrote, “He didn't kill himself, he was killed by the judgment of people who should have been loving and supporting him and trusting his heart. You know who you are.”

Prominent pastor and biblical scholar Kevin Young took to X (formally Twitter) with a call to action: “This pastor committed suicide not too far from here today. We must end LGBTQ+ persecution.”

I am sick of idiots like you hiding behind rightousness when in fact your type of person is the biggest sinner of them all. People that blackmail and expose others against thier will are criminals and murders when that person has no other way out but to kill themselves.

            "Younlove freaks"... are God and Jesus not 'love freaks'?

            You did cast stones, while you, sir, lean on a God to forgive you for being human.

            Organized religious sycophants want to judge and not be judged. To sin freely with forgiveness by a fantasy God instead of simply being a better human. But, when push comes to shove, what people think matters most.

            If Pastor Copeland only felt judged by God, he would likely be here because God forgives.

            People though, don't forgive what does not benefit them or what they do not relate to. Then they set their God aside to say or do as they please. AND feel self-righteous about it. Go you!

            To Keith Allen Steele Eash: I have a Master's in clinical psychology, and I am training for my last degree to become a licensed therapist. Cross-dressing and role play is NOT a recognized mental disorder unless it was causing significant impairment in his life, which it was not until he was outed. As a result, NO he does NOT need to see a therapist. It is NOT a diagnosable condition in his case. However, you may want to visit someone to talk about your irrational hatred of the man.

            I'm no expert but I don't think that either the old or new testament takes a position on Cos-Play.

            He didn't go into bars and try to get sexually involved with anyone (not that he doesn't have that right). He simply put on what amounts to a costume and took some pictures.

            Nobody would be up in arms if it was a Frankenstein's monster costume, so why should they get bent out of shape because it was a "woman" costume? What exactly is the big deal?

            If dressing up as Frankenstein doesn't mean that he fails to practice his religion, then why should dressing up as a woman?

            You can understand the secrecy because many people in his circle don't understand that he was just wearing a costume. It is so unfortunate!

                Who are you to say he was sick? It's the mentality of the judgy people that is sick. They are blind to how they tear others down. We are meant to build one another up. "Love one another as we also love ourselves."

                But that's just the thing. When we do not love ourselves, it is so difficult to not project that upon those around us. We tear down in the name of the Lord. That is taking up the name of the Lord "for futility". It's misrepresenting Him and calling it love. It's not love. It's fear and bondage.

                One of my dearest friends took his life at the age of 50. He never got over the torment he endured at the hands of people who didn't fear who he was, but feared being okay with who he was. He was one of the most loving, caring funny, creative, amazing people I have ever known.

                One day, we are all going to have the fog lifted, and we'll see how insane it was to be fussing over these details, picking at one another over these things when it was just all about LOVE.

                All the energy wasted on these things, trying to straighten things we thought were crooked, when honestly, if we'd just turned our heads a little this way or that, we would've seen they were just moving differently.

        Keith, I'm a retired "shrink" and there's nothing worse than " armchair therapists" like you who believe you know what is an illness and what isn't. Hate to break it to you ,but cross dressing is not sick, nor are same sex relationships sick. It's people who claim to be good Christians who bash others and try to force their twisted theological ideologies on everyone else. In 40 years of practice I have found that men who scream the loudest about the sexual orientation of others, claiming it's a sin or sick are usually hiding a secret about their sexual identities and live in a closet in fear. Besides why do you care about men who you don't know and how do they affect your life?

            Whether or not it's a sin is besides the point. This man was a human being who wasn't hurting anyone, he served his community and helped others. So he liked wearing womens clothing, big **** deal. He wasn't committing any crimes. He deserved to live his life as he saw fit. People have the the audacity to compare being gay or trans as something deviant like beastiality or pedophilia. Those are criminal acts, cross dressing is not. The ***hat who exposed him had no right to do this and I hope he suffers with guilt and shame til his dying day. Christian extremists are the worst kind of Christians there are and I am a Christian myself. I am not the moral police nor is it my job to condemn or persecute others for personal choices. My job is to love them and pray for those who suffer.

          Everything you said is society based or opinion based. We all know cross dressing is fun for some. So is theft. In England they've got social events for cross dressing, it's a hoot for them. I'm a fairly new Christian and a somewhat old guy. In my pre-christian youth I've had a few gay dudes show interest, I was very polite outwardly always when I declined.
          No shaming or rudeness at all. No screaming or shouting. Same as if I turned a woman away. Emotions are fragile and I'm sensitive to that. Inwardly I cant think of a more cringeworthy event for me. It makes my skin crawl to think of it. I catch myself recoiling from my own thoughts. That's was my pre Christian opinion and it's still my current opinion. Cross dressing is putting a toe in the pool in my opinion. In my opinion it's not normal and not wise. My opinion. I feel it shows underlying mental issues. My opinion.

          If you're going to preach the word of God, you're going to preach God's opinion. Not your own, not society's, not a shrinks, not a politicians and not a university's opinion. God's opinion. If a preacher can't stop drinking alcohol, fornicating, cross dressing, shooting heroin and so on, he should step away. There's a ton of preachers that need to step away by the way. A ton. That's not my opinion, that's the Bibles opinion. God's opinion.

          This man should have stepped away, he could have. We've got transvestite government officials all over the place, he would have been accepted. Because he killed himself, which is tragic and heartbreaking, it shows he did have mental instability.

          If this preacher were a hard lined conservative that did the same, members here would have cheered for more. I've seen it.

            No, not my opinion, it's medical knowledge. Your mansplaining ignores the fact that this man did nothing harmful to anyone and cross dressers do derive pleasurable feelings when wearing women's clothing. Of course you wouldn't know that which is obvious because you equate cross dressing with homosexuality.

              Mansplaining? Sounds like Woke Hive Mind Speak to me. It was once a medical fact that injecting Mercury into the human bloodstream cured ailments. Deal with it. The profession of the mind changes daily no matter what you think or say.

              I give two craps if a brother wants to tag on a chicks panties. Two craps. Two C. R. A. P. S.

              You preach the word of God, you're clean or you step away. That's it lady.

              Surly you don't think a professor of math would teach 1+5=69 and come off clean do you? I love the number 69. I was born in 69. I want all math to = 69 but it don't.

        If that were true then why was it Jesus taught to take care of each other? That message didn't include shaming people for being different than themselves. His most basic message was to feed the hungry, heal the sick and help the poor. Nowhere did he tell people to judge and harass others for any reason. This is where the churches and the people in them have been going so very wrong for so long.

That is diametrically opposed to accepting all no matter what, which the antichrist atheist preaches endlessly with vigor.

    This is the sad result of LGBTQ+ persecution and nonacceptance. His actions didn't harm anyone, nor was he "shoving his lifestyle down other's throats" as so many conservatives like to claim of the queer community. He was just trying to live his authentic self and because of intolerance and hateful ridicule, he was driven to take his own life. This is such a shame and I hope the community can reflect on how their actions affect others in their community.

          They already have equal rights as stated in equal rights amendment. Why in hell do we have to spell them out to every sick and crazed doofus. Next will be those who practice beastiality and include the pediphiles while we're at it. The buck stops somewhere.

          1. Michael Hunt's Avatar Michael Hunt

            And despite that, conservatives are actively trying to repeal same-sex marriage through the Supreme Court, adoption centers are denying them the ability to adopt a child, there's even groups who try to use their religious beliefs as an excuse to deny gay people services.

            And the equal rights amendment you speak of was never passed because of conservative states who have refused to pass it.

            This isn't a slippery-slope argument. Being LGBTQ does not harm anyone, it's just how someone is. Pedophilia on the other hand harms children and bestiality harms animals, both of whom cannot consent to sexual activity and because of that those things will never be legal or accepted.

              Are they really "conservatives" or are they Christo Fascists?

    How very sad this story is. He did not dress in Drag. He was a cross dresser, not Trans, not a Drag Queen. Many, many men who have stressful jobs wear women's lingerie and put on make up and high heels in the privacy of their homes. It helps them find their feminine selves and let off pressures associated with the role of the successful aipha male expected of them.

    It is absolutely hateful that he was outed and condemned. Janis Sommers, Goddess Light and Healing

    Society itself makes these things happen. I see reports on the news of one group of people not liking another, WHY? ASK YOURSELF WHY, couldn't we sit and talk with a open mind to anyone? Why can't we listen to understand their way of life without trying to defend your own? This man has chosen what he wanted to do, without harm to any soul in this world, his choice to dress as a women has zero effect on me or my family or you and your loved ones. He wasn't forcing his ways on anyone. The people that did this to him are the same ones that love to force their beliefs on everyone and can't accept for one second there is another view, their word or beliefs are not law! There are many interpretations to the bible, we tend to make it fit our beliefs and life style, why can't it be? Why does everything have to be so literal?

    Pastor Copeland, was a dedicated Pastor as well as Mayor. I understand he like to dress in womens clothes. He was not Gay, Transgender or whatever the current fad is this week. Why people felt they had to out him is just a sick thing to do, drive a man to suicide should be a federal crime. All the the negative comments I have read on this proves to me there is a lot of non-christians here, you all know who you are.

      I think you may be mistaken on one thing. It is not "non Christians" who persecute people like this man. It is Christians who judge day in and day out anything that they do not understand. They are scared at the littlest things in life and take it out on other people.

      Whatever the current fad is this week? Please take your loving, non judgmental self to any educational institution whether it be Google or a Book. Read the LBGTQ content and how it is a not a “fad”, not a choice. Talk to any member of this community and listen. As the mother of a Trans child I can assure you it wasn’t a choice for her, nor is it a “fad”. The steps they go through from shame, embarrassment, spiritual conflict, questioning God, to happiness, fulfillment and Pride is a long process. A hard, almost debilitating journey. No one would choose this.

        Marie, in my ancestral culture your daughter would have been loved and revered by the tribe as being sacred with a unique connection to the energies of the land and spirit. As a Queer person of Indigenous descent who is a priestex trying to follow the gods in the traditional ways of my multitude of cultural backgrounds would have pre-Christianization, your daughter would be welcome in our faith.

        Nobody chooses to be LGBTQ+ in any way. Why would we when modern Christian-centric cultures hate us so openly and publicly and are actively trying to eliminate us?

          Yes, in mine as well before they were forced to become Christianized. Two Spirits have always been considered to be sacred until the missionaries came along.

    I hope the person s) who ignored his pleas is plagued with guilt and remorse for being the instrument that caused a man to take his life. May this poor man's death be a catalyst for changing standards of reporting.

    This Pastor committed no crime. In Shakespeare's day women were prohibited from performing in the theater and men routinely transformed themselves into female characters. Nobody screamed that it was an abomination and a sin against God. This Pastor created a character that he performed online. No Commandments were broken. If he had belonged to an all male acting troupe and volunteered to be the female characters in their performances would this be an issue?

    May his soul rest in eternal Peace and may his family find comfort in the memories of the loving man they knew.

    Here was a man who had to give council to others, to help others find peace in their lives, and at the same time lead a double life. I feel sympathy for him and his family. How could he not know that sooner than later he would be exposed? And the big question is, should he have been exposed in the way that he was? Personally, I don't think so. When does one keep quiet and let something be and when should one speak up? What a mess, for his family, and for those in his Church who are die hard Bible thumping belivers. Their shock must be shaking them to the core.

    LGBTQ+ people are the same as anyone else! Productive members of society like anyone else can be. He (or maybe she? not sure of preferred pronouns) was a good person and a beloved member of the community. It says volumes about others that they feel they can harass and hate on someone based on an identity and hobbies that harm absolutely nobody to the point where they feel there is no way out than to end their life.

    As a Queer priestex myself, I feel immense grief. I am thankful that within Wicca and most forms of Paganism we believe that gender and sexuality are not a mistake or an affront to the gods - so far as the individual is not harming anyone else (paedophilia does not count and they are not welcome in either our faith community or the LGBTQ+ community). The sense of the divine masculine and feminine energies exist on a spectrum in my faith. My Indigenous ancestors believed that people who had both senses had spiritual power and revered them. We don't believe in hating others in my faith as hate is a form of harm and is considered to be a sin.

    May the pastor rest with the gods.

    First off, my condolences to his friends and family on his tragic death. Secondly, I am a Transgender woman who had to hide for over 40 years in my male body before I fully came out to the public. Thirdly, I became a Minister to help others like me, members of the LGBTQIA+ Community that are afraid of the Church or being known to the so called "Christian" Community or on social media for just such reasons as this Pastor kept hidden even though he wasn’t truly part of our community. I still get misgendered to this day even when I'm in full dress up mode. Although, I do not let that stop me from practicing my livelihood by praying 🙏 for others to support my LGBTQIA+ Family and supporters and hope others will eventually see that Jesus meant when he said to LOVE ❤️ EVERYONE!

    I think it's important to remember that as human beings we all lie at one point or another, either to ourselves, others or both. We often present our personalities differently weather we are with co-workers, family, friends, or within a religious community. lets not be so quick to draw a circle around ourselves and call it "us", and anyone we feel is outside of the circle and call them "other". Nothing this man did had any bearing on my life, experience, work, beliefs or spirituality. "De mortuis nil nisi bonum dicendum est"

    This is so sad. My condolences to his family. We are who we are and we are the way we were born. As a pastor, I hope he encouraged his flock to be accepting of all people as long as they are not harming anyone.

    I'm reminded of the old TV show, The Golden Girls and Dorothy's brother. The episode about his funeral is a lesson in understanding and acceptance but also pain. It's worth watching.

    The biggest, obvious lesson to all of us is DON'T POST ANYTHING ONLINE without understanding that someone, somewhere, may decide to monetize your private life, opinions, pictures, etc. A bunch of clicks is worth a lot of money. By all means, NEVER post pictures of the children in your family online. Ever.

    Kevin Young is one of the false teachers Jesus warned us about. It's safe to disregard his opinion and perspective on the Bible which he openly opposes. Indeed, he worships Ishtar(pride in sexual sin).

    As far as this poor man that drove himself to suicide, this is the part where artists and antichrists encourage more preachers to follow suit as the often do on this blog.

    Had this man give up preaching the word of God or abandon his lust for cross dressing I doubt we would be reading anything about him at all. The bible is in opposition to cross dressing and is one of the conditions of declaring judgement on a nation when they do it wholesale as USA is just beginning to encourage.

    Very sad, let's just pray he did indeed believe Jesus is The Christ and accepted him as Lord.

If you believe your fabled textbook, then remember is does say not to judge.

        Joy, I'm just saying what the Bible says, nothing more. You don't have to believe the bible is the word of God but this poor soul apparently did, he taught it. He knew the bible said no cross dressing but he chose to anyway. He posted the pictures on line(pride) and became ashamed when discovered by the press. He chose to end his life in a tragic way, he didn't have to. Nowadays he would have been encouraged to keep cross dressing.

        When a judge or jury finds a man guilty of murder, theft, rape, drug abuse, domestic violence and so on are they not judging that man?
        When you answer 'Yes' to that question you'll find your answer to be in conflict with what you just advised me the bible said. That means you don't understand what you think the Bible says.

          Where does the bible say "no cross dressing"? What they wore in those days was nothing like what we wear today. Back then, they probably couldn't even define cross dressing. Can you imagine that for all these years, I didn't know the bible had a dress code?

          Clothing styles 2000 years ago demonstrates the diversity and complexity of ancient fashion, influenced by cultural norms, climate, status, and local customs. Often, both men and women wore tunics. I'm pretty sure that there is no "book of tunics" that tells us how each sex should dress.

          I think Jesus had more important things to attend to.

          1. ServantOfJudgement's Avatar ServantOfJudgement

            It's in the old testament. Sure we dress different today but there there's always men clothes and women's clothes. Always. Dressing in the opposite sex's clothing as a practice is a form of deception. Why do you think transvestites get into trouble when they go too far with a straight dude and he finds out too late? Rage ensues. It's just bad. Don't do it.

                I don't like to quote the bible Colleen, it makes me seem like a rabid atheist attacking Christianity but since you're a fellow Christian and I know you're heart is gentle here:

                Deuteronomy 22:5

                “The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.”

                Abomination is a very powerful word selectively used by God. While there is an opinion that the old testament is obsolete, Jesus points to it again and again rendering that perspective invalid.

                As I said, it's a form of deception we would be wise to avoid. That is to say, Christians should not do it, especially preachers. Pagans and atheists are not bound by Jesus or his commandments in life but in death. They still have to deal with the ramifications of sin as we all do though. This man was a Christian in torment. A terrible tragedy. If he is a Christian, his heart is healed now and he's with our Lord Jesus.

      Jesus along with the new testament taught acceptance, love, kindness and showing mercy to all living beings as these are the product of the source (i.e. God). Causing someone to kill themselves is a far bigger sin than dressing up as a woman or even engaging in sexual acts in public. The death of Gods greates achievement (Humans) is a mortal sin like no other. Of this there is no discussion or excuse.

      The mere idea that any person who states they are a person of God, accepting someone blackmailing or forcing another shows thier true contempt of God's word and the evil that is really in thier own soul and heart.

      The way that type of logic works is the sickness that threatens this world and questions the very foundation of religion. Then what is more dangerous then a closet radical pretending to be a God fearing person, ready to pounce at the next chance of forcing the next person to suicide...

      The only "agenda" if you want to call it that, is that gay people assert that they are entitled to basic human rights and should be free from persecution.

      Nobody is recruiting children into the gay lifestyle. They are demanding the basic respect that they are entitled to.

          So are you suggesting we remove gay people from schools? Deny that they exist and force people into the closet? Why is it okay to teach straightness in schools but you can't teach about gayness? Is it because you have a double-standard derived from an ancient book written by men to control the masses? (Hint: yes it is)

          You can't pull sexuality from schools any more than you can pull blood from a stone; everyone experiences sexuality in some form and trying to deny that leads to all sorts of problems. It's better to teach a child about sexuality in an age appropriate manner than letting them find it out for themselves through unsavory and noneducational mediums.

          You try and act as if telling a gay person to stop being gay will magically make them straight again but we have centuries of evidence to the contrary. All it does is divide and segregate our society into those accepted by your religious beliefs and those who are shunned and that doesn't benefit the common good at all.

    2. Amber Fry's Avatar Amber Fry

      Actually no, there is no agenda. That's fear mongering pure and simple. I've known quite a number of people who cross dressed. Some were gay, some were queer, non tried to convert me or force anyone else into anything. If they are guilty of anything it's drawing a pretty hard line about being who you are and NOT pushing others into doing or being what isn't in them as well as accepting others for who and what they are as long as they are not hurting anyone. What people seem to keep missing here is that its about personal conduct, not about forcing others to conform. Live it, don't force it on others. BE it, don't push it. If someone needs council then by all means if they ask. Otherwise leave people to their own and live your life your way.

    Unless you are suffering from a painful fatal disease suicide is a cowards choice rather than face ridicule or embarrassment, I do not feel any sympathy for the action he took - he was not a warrior for god but instead just another coward unwilling to own what he has done. Millions of people get unwillingly outed for all kinds of things some get canceled and lose employment which happened to this man. So if you were really that embarrassed to the point where you committed suicide what does that say about how he felt about what he was doing? If he truly believed he had done nothing wrong he wouldn’t have taken his own life rather he would have stood by his private recreation/hobby and gone after the people who outed him legally - this is why I have no sympathy and think of him as a coward who was ashamed of himself!

      And yet people seem to be content to attack others until they are driven to it. Even warriors have a limit. To be constantly attacked is an awful thing. To feel hopeless and helpless is an awful thing. True Christianity wasn't meant to push people like that. It was meant to learn to treat others better, help others. Love thy neighbor did not have a clause that said "unless they are different in thoughts and beliefs then me". Not having sympathy for those in pain is so far removed from the teachings of Christianity that I don't understand why anyone would bother claiming it as their religion.

    Yes. This is truly a sad story indeed. That's why we are to walk in the Light and Love of GOD ALMIGHTY, In CHRIST JESUS. Living a 'Double Life' is being deceitful. What's done in the dark will come to the light; and as a Minister, I'm very sure this Baptist Pastor already knew this. So why try and live two separate lives? It makes him look like a hypocrite!

    We have to lead by example. If his heart and life weren't being one with JESUS CHRIST in holiness, then that trick spirit within him had him blinded and fooled, to the point that, when he was exposed, he took his own life!

    Love and Truth go hand in hand. There are Standards of Living Pure and Holy in the Body of CHRIST. If you have a stress problem and you know JESUS, then why consult to being another person? Why not seek help? Even as a Pastor, if you need help in living truthfully, then, reach out to GOD in prayer and seek other Pastors who are much stronger than yourself to help pray you through, if you feel that your prayers aren't good enough. Don't live as somebody else and feel it's okay because no one sees you behind closed doors. And yet, You want to 'hide' yourself in your sins; but then you want to have a Social Media Site based on that same character that lives as something else? That's CONFUSION! And you now beg not to be exposed? See how that devil tricked him? And is laughing at him now!

    I pray that many who read this story of his, learn from it; and seek the Living GOD ALMIGHTY to get rid of those 'secret sins' before they 'find you out'! This story is soooo horribly sad; and there is no place in the Eternal Kingdom of GOD ALMIGHTY for those who take their very own lives, which is indeed a Gift from GOD ALMIGHTY ABOVE! STOP Living Double Lives People; if You are Naming The Name Of JESUS CHRIST as Your Personal LORD & SAVIOR. AMEN!
