It’s not as sexy as Jell-O shot go-go boys in skimpy briefs, but Rick Westbrook climbed atop a rented U-Haul truck on Tuesday to launch his latest effort calling attention to the plight of homeless gay youth in Atlanta.
He’ll live atop the box truck – or inside it in the case of cold and rain – until Thursday night as a way to raise attention, supplies and cash for Lost N Found Youth. It’s a non-profit he helped launch last year as LGBT teen group YouthPride collapsed.
Since, efforts to raise awareness for the issue and funds for the cause included launching the monthly Big Gay Game Show at Jungle – that’s where you’ll find the cute guys in sexy underwear selling shots – beer busts and donations from drag queens.
On Wednesday, Lost N Found marks its first anniversary with a town hall meeting. Westbrook is expected to take a break from his truck top living for the meeting before returning to the vehicle at Ansley Square for a candlelight vigil.
