    A filmmaker is making a interracial gay romance which is established outside a real-life homophobic New york city church.

    ATLAH Worldwide Missionary Church in Harlem, NYC is widely known for its eccentric priest James David Manning, along with a church sign which often announces homophobic messages.

    The sign has declared \"Jesus would rock homos-- stoning is still the law\"-- while Manning famously alleged that Starbucks flavours cappucinos with the \"semen of Sodomites\".

    However filmmaker Jeff L Lieberman is resisting against the church in a remarkable method, by making it the centre of a gay romance.

    A synopsis for the movie, My Harlem, describes: \"When Nathan as well as Langston fulfill someday under a Harlem church indicator, both are equally furious by the message against 'White homo satanic forces'.

    \" Yet a discussion concerning the underlying concern of gentrification in Harlem rapidly leads to a misunderstanding, recovered just by their specific ideas concerning Harlem, as well as their mutual destination.

    \" As we comply with Nathan as well as Langston on their first few dates, we see the hard as well as commonly lively conversations that take place.

    \" However, their trip comes to be more difficult as two of their initial dates are disrupted with the news of police capturings of unarmed black men in Louisiana and Minnesota.

    \" As they enjoy the live feed of a lady's desperate appeal as her boyfriend lays passing away, their various reactions to the politically-charged racial globe separates them.\"

    Lieberman described of his decision to include the ATLAH church: \" This certain church appears to take special enjoyment in targeting the LGBTIQ neighborhood, recommending that 'homos' be stoned or shaken off structures, as well as often exacerbating worn out stereotypes of gay men as sex-related deviants out to 'swipe' the community.

    \" Yet their hate doesn't just put on gays and lesbians. They have targeted Black people, females, President Obama, and lots of others.

    \" There is regular use the 'N-word' and also offenses of churches making political endorsements. You won't be surprised to understand that the indicator proclaimed glowing support for a President Trump.

    He included: \"I assumed it would be remarkable to face this indicator and the underlying fact regarding gentrification with a story about two individuals forced into a discussion as they each quit and also absorb the shocking message.

    \" What created was the story of Nathan as well as Langston, 2 men, one Black, one White, both gay, with very different reactions to the indication.

    \" It's a movie where being gay is not the primary focus, however concerns of race, gentrification and sexuality are all integrated right into one.\"
