Homeless LGBT Youth Org Raising Funds To Purchase “Semen Latte” Pastor’s Hate Church

Can you say schadenfreude?

Atlah Worldwide Church, who brought us homophobic classics like “White homos looking for black meat” and “semen lattes” is up for public auction due to $1m in dept, and The Ali Forney Center has launched a fundraising drive to claim the space for LGBT youth.

AFC executive director Carl Siciliano praised LGBT-inclusive Harlem residents and allies who stood up to church’s demented “pastor,” David Manning:

“The biggest reason our youths are driven from their homes is because of homophobic and transphobic religious beliefs of their parents. It has meant the world to us that so many Harlem residents have stood up to support our young people, and are now urging us to provide urgently needed care at the site of so much hatred. If we are able to obtain the space it would truly be a triumph of love over hatred.”

It seems like love is indeed triumphing, as the effort is already  50 percent toward the $200k goal, which AFC hopes will help obtain additional support from local government and foundations to close the deal. If the group secures the space, they also hope to launch a catering business run by AFC clients.

We’ve volunteered in different capacities for AFC many times, and we can vouch that this is an organization that cares and does real work to help get LGBT youth off the streets and give them a leg up in the world.
