Gay, Black, White, Interracial Couple, and an Ex-pastor. Oh my! – Joel Barrett and David Seymour

Man #1 – He was married to a woman. Was a pastor. Then decided he could no longer, NOT live his truth as a gay man.

Man #2 – He was black, gay, and ready to mate. Then they met and the magic began.

When it seems all the cards are stacked against you because of race, interracial marriage, and a past fraught with religious persecution because you are gay, you gotta wonder, will this relationship survive.

Well my buddy Joel Barrett and his husband David Seymour break all the myths about what you can do when from many peoples perspectives this just shouldn’t work!
