The Black Church | Gospel and Disco’s Gay Anthems | PBS
Official Website: https://to.pbs.org/2MFmZSR | #BlackChurchPBS
The Love Center, a Bay Area Pentecostal Black church, adopted their community’s countercultural mentality ushering in a new era in Christianity, becoming a haven for gay and lesbian singers who felt alienated from the church they grew up in. But what had been repressed would find a novel way to be expressed in sacred church vocals fused with secular club rhythms to form disco’s gay anthems.
