They've opened a cavernous thrift store. They've gutted a massive new home. And on Saturday friends, supporters and volunteers with Lost N Found Youth partied. With drag queens, cute a cappella singers, donated art and cake. Lots of cake. Cookies and cupcakes, too.
The non-profit that cares for gay Atlanta's homeless teens celebrated the grand opening of its 13,000-square-foot thrift store of Cheshire Bridge Road that they hope will fund their ambitious goals. We peeked inside the new store when it opened in November and Saturday's party served notice to come on in and shop, y'all. The event included an auction of prints from gay photographers and artists Philip Bonneau and Blane Bussey.
Hundreds of people recently helped Lost N Found clean up a three-story Midtown building, which we took a look at last month. After $400,000 in renovations, the group plans for the house to expand the number of beds it can offer to homeless LGBT youth.
