YouthPride is collapsing amidst financial troubles, past due rent and a non-existent board. But hey, they’ve got free Hawks tickets!
The group for LGBT teens offered up 20 free tickets, first come first serve, in an email to supporters last Wednesday for the Hawks game that night. Never mind that the group may or may not still have a home, may or may not have funds to operate and may or may not be cooperating with a task force of LGBT activists and non-profit leaders hoping to rescue it. Oh, and it’s all your fault.
Maybe the group just needed a little fun before a public town hall on Tuesday. That’s when the task force will present two reports on YouthPride and what to do if the non-profit collapses. They’ll also answer questions from the public and discuss the future of services for LGBT youth. At least one YouthPride official is expected to attend, though the group has stopped cooperating with the task force hoping to help it.
And the Hawks? They lost to the Golden State Warriors, 85-82.
