How big an issue is aids in the gay community in Atlanta? It’s a big issue Especially I think in a black community is you know you have [a] lot of people? That have a problem with with being gay, but I think some people are actually more like that So you know God want us to love everybody? How do we solve it just love? Stop all this judgmental No matter what your religion [is] you’ll believe just love that’s it just love Next I love you, but you can stop being gay today when his parents try to pray away the gay There’s a sickness that’s going on inside of you [that] we need to fix will others join the choir or preach We release Hmm a different way, but it’s not right it’s not right to you When what would you do, Georgia on my mind returns?
