tyler perry is about to help gay youth in a big way

tyler perry is giving all the way back.
as much as we all have our opinions on him,
i read something today that might change a few minds about where his heart is.
he wants to help battered vixens and gay youth.
this is what he had to say via “essence“…

You know what, right now I’m dreaming about how do I build this shelter for trafficked girls, boys and battered women.

During an interview with Gayle King for CBS, Perry expanded his thoughts on his shelter to include LGBTQ youth who are displaced. Perry told King, “Having a compound that is a beautiful place right here somewhere on this 330 acres, where they’re trained in the business and they become self-sufficient, they live in nice apartments, there’s daycare, there’s all of these wonderful things that allows them to re-enter society and then pay it forward again. That’s what I hope to do soon.”

well go head tyler.

with all these blessings,
i’m glad he is choosing to give back in this way.
is it wrong to say that i’m shocked he even mentioned the gay community?
i think it’s because of how his fan base is set up.
either way,
i’m here for what he’s trying to do.
i’m also happy he is giving me that good on the 23rd of october.
by “good“,
i mean sexy wolves.

but tyler keeps the eye candy

  1. Confirmed. Mr. Perry reads this website. Don’t be surprised. Beyonce watches Real Housewives of Atlanta. Famous people need entertainment too.

    I doubt any gays on TMZ were dragging him, let alone gay black ones.

  2. Oh my god, thats the brotha from the Payne. Dude is scrumptious and whats his name? I imagine many lgbt are abandon by parents who dont accept our lifestyle. He’s doing good and giving back to Georgia.

  3. I was just getting ready to do my Yoga stretches with music.. (you gotta keep that body stretched), got dam. Alexa started speaking and scared tf outta me and then I saw this post.

    I know for a fact MY previous POST about him were openly pointing at gay youth being left homeless for sure after being turned away by their parents…. 😅😅 I e brought that up serval times down here at meetings and no one gives a shit.

    So it’s good to hear that he HOPES to do soon. I’d be interested to see how this plan is implemented and kept up for the future.

    The way he said LGBTQ..lol was a little unsure but at least he has a plan. Can’t argue with that. Now it’s time to see it in action.

  4. Um,

    *rolls eyes* 🙄

    Tyler, I know you probably have some ambiguously gay light skin dude you call your “publicist” reading this website so please drop the bullshtt. And Jamari, it’s okay. I understand how you have to handle these affairs with a fine line. You are now moving into what is known as “access media.” People like Tyler and his sycophants can destroy you in an instant if you come out against them, so we understand. Keep publishing these puff pieces for Madea. I’m sure she’ll send an invite to one of her southern balls someday soon 😆

    1. He gives sexy medium-brown and dark-skinned brothers a lot of play…in his films and TV shows. And his baby mama, I mean girlfriend and mother of his child, is a stunningly beautiful brown-skinned Ethiopian supermodel. Just saying!

      1. Tyler hand picks all the eye candy…he said so. Got all the plugs and connects to walk up on these guys on set or getting personal numbers to call them directly….go to the ego! Choklit seems to be the preferred.

  5. This is actually lit. I love how he’s getting the actors I used to see in black YouTube series a chance on the big screen as well. I’m waiting for him to give us a male version of Being Mary Jane or the game. I want a show more than just fucking, our success, our failures, our friendships and stress. That’d be lit

  6. Do it, Tyler Perry! I hope he implements this plan, and implements it well. If he does, it could be a game-changer for LGBTQ youth in Atlanta. Just keep any sketchy people away from all of this, though. Get the best and most honorable folks, who won’t have any designs on money or these LGBTQ youth, and who know how to administer well.

  7. I have mixed feelings about this only because I know Tyler is friends with some pastors who are/were anti LGBTQ.I know how everything he does he incorporates his faith/religion and I’m pretty sure there will be a church or something similar on this compound.

    Also I don’t know Tyler personal views about homosexuality.Does he tolerate it,think it’s a choice, think people can be “delivered” from it,etc? I hope that these LGBTQ young people will be accepted as they are and nobody will try to minister to them to change who they are.

    It’s always been interesting to me how Tyler’s Christian/religious fans have accepted him having a child out of wedlock.I guess sex outside of marriage is OK as long as it’s heterosexual sex.
    Well I assume Tyler and his baby mama had sexual intercourse.

  8. Now this is what I like to hear, now if only he could be more open about it, & put more LGBT actors and/or characters in his projects and portray them accurately ONLY THEN will I give him his flowers, until then my foot is still on that neck!!!

  9. I’m so proud of Tyler Perry. Opening his compound, giving back to the community by hiring inspiring actors/actresses, and now helping out the lgbt.

    I wish him much success. I won’t be checking for his new show tho, I just can’t watch that trash anymore. I stopped watching The Haves and The Have nots 3 seasons ago.

  10. Over the years his content has been criticized, but not one person can honest say this man has not used the platform he was blessed with wisely. Tyler has provided jobs, housing, and he has did a lot for the community and he should be commended for that.

"off topic" and other nonsense gets sent to my spam folder. other than that, play nice and let's discuss!
