Ty is also one of three older LGBT people featured in the new documentary, Before You Know It, which is currently raising funds for distribution (see http://beforeyouknowitfilm.com/). In the Ebony profile, he talks about how Harlem has changed for LGBT people, and then concludes,
“I wish I could say something profound about being Black, gay and a senior in Harlem but my story is pretty much the same as anyone else. We all want to be connected to somebody.
“Why do you think churches are full on Sunday? People want to find some connection. Or else, why do they go? I think it’s the same reason why clubs are packed on Saturday. [Laughs.]
“At the end of the day everyone wants someone to talk to and feel connected to.”
