Feature Film To Center On Harlem Hate Church

NBC Out reports:

In his new film, “My Harlem,” filmmaker Jeff L. Lieberman takes a stand against Harlem’s anti-gay ATLAH Worldwide Missionary Church. The Vancouver native, who has documentary “The Amazing Nina Simone” under his belt, uses his new film to examine important themes including homophobia, gentrification and violence against the LGBTQ community. In “My Harlem,” the two main characters, Nathan and Langston, initially bond over an anti-gay sign outside ATLAH, a real-life Harlem church that has made countless headlines due to its offensive messaging.

Lieberman says:

“My Harlem” is a narrative feature film. It is essentially a love story. A romantic comedy at its very heart, but it goes a lot deeper into issues that are more substantial than most films like that. It’s set in Harlem and it tries to explore the history of the neighborhood, but also what’s going on today — gentrification and different cultures sort of bumping up against each other, different people calling it home and just the changing nature of a lot of neighborhoods, like Philly, Baltimore where people are seeing possible development and long time residents fearing the neighborhood is changing.

      yeah. Joe reported on that already and when he said the 4-year old girl consented I almost threw up. What a sick fuck.

      • greenmanTN

        Yeah. The claim, or the very idea, that a four year old “consented” to sex was about enough to fry your brain, wasn’t it?

        • Todd20036

          Actually, maybe 100 years ago, that defense would have worked.

        It’s the same thing my fundie uncle told my cousin after she was assaulted at age 5. Well, close. He told her she “shouldn’t have been flirting” with her rapist. At age 5. My uncle’s the most religious person I know.

    • RoverSerton

      But the 4 year old was asking for it. How do you say no to that pretty face.

        I know, snark, yet shudder, it’s how some people’s minds work. Grizzly facts. Makes me quiver. Which I didn’t mean as a pun. Quiverfull movement of the religious reich. Ugh me. Sorry. Though they should be actually sorrier. And they never are … Josh Duggar, etc.

    Looks good. I wish him all the success he can.

        The usual BS projection. He’s the one that sounded nervous, like a chastised school boy, speaking out of turn. There was some question yesterday as to ‘why would he be invited?’, I hope this answers the question.

  • greenmanTN

    Unless they’re serve semen lattes, I’ll wait until it gets to Netflix.

    • clay

      I now hope the film includes a scene at Starbucks.

      • bambinoitaliano

        The theme song should be that Taylor Swift’s Starbuck lovers.

    • Treant

      I prefer a good fap-acchino.

    • Trish

      I love you greenmanTN!

      I want to cum to your location and gulp down a semen latte straight from your cock.

      • greenmanTN

        Thanks?

        • JCF

          I think you forgot to add “…but no thanks” here. O_o

  • Henry Auvil

    It looks like a great date flick. Now if I could just find a date…

  • Gerry Fisher

    Great potential.

  • Trish

    Oh…

    Trying to say something nice here…..I’m sure there will be a handful of people who will enjoy this sort of film (I think).

    • Jean-Marc in Canada

      Oh my, someone’s bitter.

      • Trish

        Not bitter at all. Simply realistic.

        • bobbyjoe

          About a film you haven’t seen and that’s not even been fully made yet? It’s like Nostradamus and Roger Ebert had a baby.

          • Trish

            Just an informed guess. In a similar vein, if the proposed film was a documentary about a dog shitting in the park, I’d have much the same reaction. But you’re entitled to your opinion, so feel free to contribute money to their fundraising efforts if you think this is a worthwhile artistic endeavor.
