YouthPride, existing in an apparent limbo because it still does not have a complete board of directors after at least two years of puzzling leadership, was officially evicted by Fulton County marshals June 28 from its most recent location west of downtown Atlanta in the Ashview Heights neighborhood.
YouthPride is a nonprofit dedicated to serving LGBT and questioning young people, but has struggled with funding and leadership. Questions over who serves on YouthPride’s board, and whether the organization is in compliance with its bylaws that require a five-member board, have lingered since GA Voice began asking about YouthPride’s leadership in the wake of the organization’s desperate plea for funds in late 2011.
The most recent eviction process began April 30, according to documents filed in Fulton Magistrate Court, after three months of unpaid rent.
