Meet Ty...


Meet Ty, a seasoned LGBT activist born and raised in Harlem, and one of the main subjects of BEFORE YOU KNOW IT. The outreach director for Harlem’s division of SAGE (Services and Advocacy for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender Elders), Ty is committed to raising awareness about LGBT senior issues and creating a safe place for LGBT seniors to socialize and share experiences. But, when same-sex marriage is legalized in New York, something that Ty never thought would be achievable in his lifetime, Ty is faced with a series of unexpected possibilities, and obstacles, that place the relationship between his community activism and personal fulfillment in question.
