"I don't know if I could be misquoting because he so black and white in so many other ways like I, can't just. Just kind of. Take a pass on Lonnie because God clearly used to. But I think that's one of the. That's one of the big questions, not just hanging over Lonnie's head, but over all of these church leaders of saying. The the obvious evidence is that God did use if you believe in God, God. Did use this game man to do all these things that are still impacting the world. In, if it could be argued. In positive ways, so so unless you continue to rewrite history, so it matches your disjointed discordant dot doctrine. That Mitt the truth of the matter based on this man's life is that God used him? And and can you imagine what would have happened if the church had not had? It's hang ups about be gay back then. And what if he had lived and you know all the more he could have accomplished and in a way I'm. This. Ties into what you're doing now. Can you're fixing that with your ministry? By bringing LGBT people back into the Church and I. I'm so grateful for you and there's there's a space for that and there's a real need for that and you're doing it and like. The way like my making a movie about money Frisbee is helping to like his voice. You're doing that every day as well. So. Thank you for what you do can. It's just one of the reasons I was so excited to get on this podcast and talk to you about these is, and and I have to commend you on doing good job of not letting this turned into a complete session. Know I did have my pastor head on a couple of seconds but you. But you know I'm I'M GONNA. Tell you know. This podcast has become that kind of storytelling space to. For Asian Americans who either our allies are parent allies, or they are lgbtq people themselves. And I feel like you know I I know. I have my critics out there who doesn't. But like you know what this is my space and these are people that otherwise of like your your movies. Otherwise their story will never get hurt. And I'm hearing stories. Steven and I'm only be encouraged by this. I'm hearing stories of people who are still kind of wrestling internally no matter where they go to church, or you know what what they claim to believe, or what position they hold in some organization. When they put their ear buds in, and they listen to these episodes and the hill here real human stories, and they're open to being touched by them, it's actually changing hearts and minds and and I guess. That's partly. Storyteller if there's. When I first came out of the 'cause I was reaching for. Spy Books about people coming out of the closet because I know really many people, and of course there were no Asian out Asian. People I could talk to or books. Could we but? This podcast is providing a space for that. So many lgbt agent guests. Lt q gusts on your show, which is amazing and like. The semi action from falling for angels you know people coming out of the cost horror, dealing with their own identity and self image issues type of sexuality, and of course, a little bit of Chris Christian hypocrisy thrown in like you know. I was at the Virginia. Film Festival with. With falling for Angels Poss-, Fall and people this this African American student from the audience like up talked about how much mets. For him to watch it and find his voice and how? It was. It was a way to air out. Internalized, racism, and disagreements, but attractiveness, and like yeah, so yeah, we're doing. We're doing it and storytelling such an important part of our culture for sure. Well I will make you this promise Stephen when. This shelter in place let's up and especially when your husband who's a public health person really believes that safe. I mean we're going to have to get together for a meal.

"Enough about me. Now you get to listen in on a very fun conversation with Stephen, J cooke. My guest today is Stephen J, and initially we were going to actually have in in person. Home Studio interview, which I I always prefer, and I think our guests in Joe when they live locally, but with all of this shelter in place. We just thought it was wise. Not Infect each other if The, virus Ri- Steve. Steven is a writer director. He's been touted as one of the Asian American directors to watch and I've actually. had the pleasure of watching that episode that you wrote falling for angels, Koreatown and also a leading man. which I have so many questions incompetence of how? But you know Stephen. You were recommended by common friend, Cheryl Mac and show Mac Freeman and because you grew up together in Virginia Beach Virginia Yes. We went through the first Chinese baptist, Church, where my dad was a deacon, and we were in the same youth group. This is like a very southern Baptist Church. So like every summer we would go to Lynchburg. Jerry Falwell's home, we would you know the hand? Wow, really and then we would like. You know we would do the Christian camping like every summer. And it was. It was a very southern. Baptist upbringing in. That's where. So Charlotte I are friends from. Chinese Youth Group Again. Shout out to show for connecting us because I feel like we should have been friends years ago. Yeah so thanks for connecting us. Yeah. That's right now. You also recently got married to. Your husband does a little bit especially during all of this pandemic stuff. How in the world was that impacting your your wedding and your honeymoon? Well. We weren't planning a honeymoon just because there was a lot of pressure to. to to. Plan. Right, but so Jesse works, and public health and he actually worked with agents public health and he went to Grad. School for Public Health. There were a lot of them there and so like. Our, our our wedding date was on Leap Day and February twenty ninth, and it was very close. You know as the date was approaching like. Should we cancel? And by that time there were only fifty five confirmed cases in California and the fact that Jesse thought it was safe, and all of these people who worked in public health thought it was safe. Who are are close personal friends I was like. Go on with it. We've been planning this year. I don't WanNa like. Go this. But that didn't stop people from flaking out and. They were the Chinese people who did it right. The white people, and like the the other minorities thinking they had no problem, but you know how paranoid the Chinese people are. Just you know like IDA friend from Huston my best friends and she was you know her her husband's. Will her husband Otolaryngology. So like he's around sick people sick orifices day, so he talked her into not coming and I was heartbroken. I defend hot from Hong Kong who couldn't come for obvious reasons, so it was it like I tell you about three people come to the wedding because of it, but other than we still had like. A grand time, the one hundred and seventy people at Green Harbor Restaurant in temple city. It was a lot fun. Nice Nice now I have to ask you know it's been months since you're that wedding day when he wasn't shelter in place yet, but if any of your guests have come down with an infection of Diet. That is the great question and like we were just reading like our our married, becoming a vector for the virus. Like like we don't want anyone to die and I'm pleased to report that no one has died from the wedding. No one has caught the corona virus although some people. Did get the flu from the virus, and they got tested, and the tests were negative. But also the coronavirus tests are not accurate so as far as we know with the testing capabilities we have. No one has gotten the Rona for my website we are. Yes. Yes, so maybe that was why I said. Let's just do this remotely being safe because you know. Vick Yes. You could be a carrier. Like some like Jesse, my husband likes to do like six feet away. Hang out with some people and I'm I'm just not even into that because I feel like. Defeats the whole purpose after like that. That choir practice in Seattle, where like everyone was six feet apart and yes. That's right like you know what I. I'm perfectly fine talking to people who are the resume. Yeah well. We're also recording this. In the middle of pride month and so I I want to start with. Falling for Angels Koreatown because I think in unpacking that for me, you'll be able to tell Lubar of your journey of coming out and coming through that Southern Baptist Church and all this stuff. So. I gotTA. Tell you something funny. Okay smut! My daughter's twenty one and she's very woke and she's all into a lot of the themes that you bring in terms of. Colonial imperialism cultural imperialism all that stuff. She's A. She's an Asian Studies double major in college with her, so I I had no idea what this episode was about I clicked it open, and she happened to be sitting on the Sofa next to me I said Hey watch this in your opening scene the the it's kind of like the gay. Tinder Hookup. So, IT'S A. It's a light. Why does this and it's not like you know she's never she's like. So Dad. This is weird, so we're going to watch gay porn together and. I think of my mind. Oh, I can't wait to talk to Stephen but. Then you know then? She had to do homework because she's doing her classes online, so she left, and she missed the rest of the episode, and I explained to her how? How obe brilliant that was if you understand the whole arc of your story in that episode? Oh, What do you mean like having the index? Yeah, because he even yes, because it was kind of an affront, it was like wham like you'll right into this, but then as you get through the rest of the episode. It's like both of them are struggling with this kind of self hatred. That is to their Asian Asian as an identity, and and so even this this hookup and I don't WanNa kiss and all this kind of stuff. It gets all kind of disseminated as the the episode unfolds, and I said Gena said they spent the rest of the night, just talking and eating in Korea town which she frequently lot when she's home, right? It was a powerful. And then you know our daughter being an adopt he I said and you know he was flying out that next morning to actually go try to find his birth parents. So. So one thing that I noticed because I knew a little bit of your background. Is that the Kevin Character who was taiwanese-american? He just drops that. He went to Chinese Baptist Church. And so I'm thinking. I wonder how much of Stephen is in this character. So you tell me, but I just thought you know that's not something that normally here. In a episode of anything is I went to Chinese Baptist Church. It's very specific and. True Kevin Kevin is loosely based on me and Gino. The korean-american adoptee is loosely based on my friend. covent Berlinde. Who and we co-chaired the Asian? American Committee at the Director School together and. We went out to dinner. You know it was basically a day, even though he's married to a woman, and we talked about his experience as a adoptee and identity, and what it means to be clean American. And, I always wanted to do a story about. Asian mandating each other, because it doesn't happen very often, I mean interracial dating is very prevalent in our community. It's the norm and like I feel like among like Hetero and homosexual populations, and you just thoughts. You don't see it on screen and. And I just wanted to see you know it would be nice to see that so. I? Am because it informed so much about who we are as people and their self loathing involved, and I know that, but I was coming out with your a kid growing up in Virginia Beach. Your pump with images of like beauty, but all of those beauties..
