"Holler If You Hear Me" examines homophobia in the Black church.

A new BET documentary aims to uncover a taboo topic in the Black church: gay and lesbian church members. Writer/ producer Clay Cane travels to Atlanta, Georgia to meet church members who have both felt ostracized by the church, and some who have been accepted, like Bishop Allen, who leads Visionary Church of Atlanta, an LGBT church.
