Carl Siciliano, founder and executive director of The Ali Forney Center, talks to Randy about the current #HarlemNoHate Campaign which aims to raise funds to help the Center purchase a church in Harlem to expand it's services for homeless LGBT youth.
The poetic irony is that the pastor of the church, Rev. James Manning, has spent years spewing vitriolic hate speech towards the LGBT community in Harlem.
Pastor Manning is notorious for signage at the church with messages such as “Jesus would stone homos” and that all supporters of LGBT people should be cursed with cancer, HIV, madness, and eternal damnation.
"The biggest reason our youths are driven from their homes is because of homophobic and transphobic religious beliefs of their parents. If we are able to obtain the space it would truly be a triumph of love over hatred," says Siciliano.
The church is being put up for auction due to unpaid bills and tax liens on February 24th. The goal of the #HarlemNoHate campaign is to purchase the church and make what was once a place that put religious-based hate on broad display, and turn it into a safe haven for young LGBT.
The Ali Forney Center is the largest and most comprehensive organization in the nation dedicated to housing LGBT youth. AFC serves youth aged 16-24, and provides emergency and transitional housing, street outreach, a drop-in center, medical and mental health treatment, a vocational/educational program, and a counseling project for the families of LGBT youth.
Listen as we talk about the difficulties homeless LGBT youth face and how you can help.

Triple threat talent Carl Thornton debuts the perfect summer dance anthem that will inspire and ignite the clubs with his debut single, “Get Up!” From the opening notes, one can hear a melodic and irresistible drive with an electrifying and pulsating beat that entices you to move with unabashed joy until the song is over.
After traveling the world and performing professionally for ten years, Carl has not lost sight of his goals from an early age where he vowed that singing was what he was destined to do. “Get Up!” is the very first song Carl has written where he confidently steps out as an artist.
Blending velvety, rich vocals, the song is both rhythmic and the flawless mix of pop and electronic music taking inspiration from Usher, Calvin Harris, and Avicii.
“GET UP!” is now available at iTunes, Amazon, and CDbaby.com. Four exclusive remixes will be released soon with an accompanying music video shot at Harlem Gay Pride Parade in June 2014 and will be released later this summer.
