Skye Adrian fled homosexual persecution in Jamaica and immigrated to America when he was only 18 years old. Raised by his grandparents, he had never met his parents. Upon moving to New York City, he moved in with his father and stepmom. As soon as they found out he was gay, their feelings for him shifted and he didn’t feel safe in their house. Skye came to America to find acceptance and love and realized that hatred doesn’t just live in one place–it spreads. However, this did not deter his hopefulness and positivity. He forged on and found solace at the Ali Forney Center for LGBTQ homeless youth and today, at only 21 years old, he’s a consultant for the New York City Continue of Care, giving back to the community that gave him a home. He’s also about to sign the lease on his first apartment!
