From The Inquirer
James Allen came out as bisexual at 13, only to absorb so much abuse that he considered taking his own life.
Through the years, he vowed to himself, “One day, I’m going to have my own place, where I feel safe and loved.”
On Tuesday, Allen, now 20, declared that he had finally found that place.
“This is my domain,” he told about 125 people gathered for the grand opening of the Gloria Casarez Residence in North Philadelphia, the first LGBTQ-friendly permanent housing for young adults in Pennsylvania.
