Tyler Perry Studios Will Include Compound For Homeless Women, Displaced LGBT Youth & Sex Trafficking Victims
Tyler Perry Studios is the gift that keeps on giving! This weekend, filmmaker Tyler Perry unveiled his new jaw-dropping 300 acre space on the outskirts of Atlanta, GA with all of Black Hollywood in attendance. But it’s not just the place where “The Haves and the Have Nots” is filmed! He hopes to open a portion of his studios to the less fortunate.
He recently told Gayle King:
“I’ll tell you what I’m most excited about next. Pulling this next phase off is building a compound for trafficked women, girls, homeless women, LGBTQ youth who are put out and displaced – and having a compound that is a beautiful place, right here on these 330 acres where they are trained in the business. And they become self-sufficient.”
Tyler Perry continued:
“They live in nice apartments, there’s daycare- all of these wonderful things that allows them to re-enter society, and then pay it forward again. So that’s what I hope to do soon.”
