Atlanta’s LGBT Homelessness: One Year Later


One year ago this November we gathered to discuss the tragedy of queer youth homelessness here in Atlanta. Since that meeting Lost-n-Found Youth has been created to address this emergency. Now a year on we are again calling on our community to gather at the Rush Center to discuss our youth.

The Lost-n-Found board will answer questions and present what the organization has learned about Atlanta’s queer youth homelessness, what has been done to address it, and outline what Lost-n-Found has planned for 2013.

Following the meeting a candle light vigil will be held at 9pm outside Brushstrokes in Midtown Atlanta. There Lost-n-Found Youth's Executive Director Rick Westbrook will be living as a homeless youth for 48 hours. With nothing more than his cell phone and ID, he will raise awareness and depend on the kindness of the community to survive.
