Binbin Chen and Melissa Terry at StoryCorps.

Binbin Chen moved from China to the United States to be with his mother when he was 12 years old. Last year, he graduated from Georgia Tech in a special graduation ceremony for LGBT students. In the StoryCorps booth, Binbin told Melissa Terry about how being part of the Lavender graduation ceremony meant having a talk with his mom.  

This story was recorded in partnership with the Atlanta History Center, which hosts Atlanta’s StoryCorps booth.
