Coming Out: Shara Dae
Shara Dae always knew she was different. When she moved to Philly she visited The Attic Youth Center. At the time, she was still a teenager and the LGBT youth organization was small – she met only a few other gay teens there. But in many ways, the experience would help shape her identity for years to come.
“I felt a part of the community,” says Dae, now in her 30s, in a video for I’m From Driftwood – which celebrates the black LGBT experience during Black History Month. “And I thought, you know, I’m a part of the gay community, I’m feeling stronger about who I am.”
