Terrence Clemens grew up in poverty-torn South Central Los Angeles, where he faced many of life's imaginable hurdles. Raised by his great-grandmother, he at times had to travel an hour to Artesia High School, where he studied and played on the basketball team. Prison was a familiar place for his family, and Clemens himself also spent nine months at a maximum-security prison in Kansas.
Now with an associates degree in general studies on his resume, Clemens is headed to Johnson & Wales University in Denver, Colorado, where he will pursue a bachelors degree, and play basketball. He'll do so as a fully out, openly gay man.
