As we continue our series speaking with young people who are biracial and identify as part of the LGBTQ community, on this episode, I speak with Jalen Little.
Jalen is a junior at Tufts University studying Human Factors Engineering. He grew up in Waterbury, Connecticut. Jalen is biracial, with two mixed-race parents and currently identifies as a black and Hispanic queer person.
Jalen tells us his painful story of growing up in an abusive home, and how he rebuilt his life after facing years of objectification, self-harm, and more.
