On the surface, they are true-to-life, relatable people – raising children, working jobs, finding and maintaining romance – but just below the veneer of happiness, their lives are entangled by heartbreak, deceit and lies that threaten to destroy everything.
Throughout the season, “If Loving You Is Wrong” continues to follow Alex (Amanda Clayton), Kelly (Edwina Findley Dickerson), Marcie (Heather Hemmens), Esperanza (Zulay Henao) and Natalie (April Parker Jones) on their quest to find love in the midst of managing very complex lives.
Aside from longstanding rumors about Perry’s own sexual preference, it’s surprising that he would address homosexuality at all, considering his fan base is predominantly Black Christian women. His character, Jeffery, is a gay Black man who comes from a very wealthy family and is also trapped in the closet, R. While being in the closet is a very real experience for many same-gender-loving people, particularly Black men, it didn’t quite sit well with me upon first watching the show, because I suspected Perry would more than likely take the opportunity to do what he does best: drench his character in so many stereotypes that it would turn into a television hate-fest. Despite being an educated, 20-something psychologist who comes from privilege and class, Jeffery is, at the very core, a self-loathing homosexual who lusts after his friend and client, Wyatt.
(There’s even an Hispanic maid.) But this time, there's one group Perry threw into the mix that I never thought he'd give the time of day to: gay men.

The comedy has begun production at the new Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta and will premiere on OWN in 2018. Both series will air through 2017 with 22 and 20 episodes respectively.
Yes, some men who are in denial about their sexuality tend to act out in very unhealthy ways, but that’s only telling part of the story.
