What is Pure The Series?
Pure is a True story based on an array of scenarios i've experienced while dating over the past few years. Pure is a romantic drama/comedy, mostly because my love life is a joke.
Pure is an unfiltered look into my unordinary life. From being a vegan in a world full of meat eaters, to never being in a relationship, my life is very interesting if I do say so myself.
I also love Pure because it touches on some really serious issues that a lot of my peers and I deal with.
Topics that we don’t often talk about because we think we’re the only ones feeling the way we do. Among those topics are things such as alcoholism, toxic relationships and depression, which I dealt with personally for a long time.
I hope Pure sends the message that no matter how dark things get, you can make it through, just like I did.
More about the Writer, Director and Producer…
My name is Atiya Lilly-Gassaway but I now go by Love Atiya. I’m a 22 year old multitalented artist from New York City. I’m mostly known for my avid animal activism.
I’ve been able to travel the world with animal activist groups and peacefully protest about important issues. After growing as an activist I realized that celebrity is something that I wanted in order to have a platform to speak to a larger crowd about animal rights.
In 2015 I took a visit to Hollywood, California with my dad and decided it wasn’t a place I wanted to live just yet. In 2016 I moved to Atlanta, Georgia and actively pursued my acting career.
Yet, no matter how hard I searched, I couldn’t find a role I felt would impact the community in a powerful way. I took matters into my own hands and took my life experiences and made them into art.
That’s when Pure was birthed. Pure is a raw reflection of myself and a mirror to everyone watching. I believe everyone will find a way to relate to Pure.
