Journalist Clay Cane explores homophobia in the black church with the groundbreaking BET.com documentary Holler If You Hear Me: Black and Gay in the Church. Directed by Cane, his film debut puts the narrative in the hands of Black LGBT people who are torn between their faith and sexuality. Through emotional and deeply honest storytelling, Holler If You Hear Me boldly tackles the intersections of race, gender, sexuality and religion. Filmed in Atlanta, Georgia, where church and LGBT culture cross paths like nowhere else in the country, Cane and BET.com unpack this controversial but important issue.
