YouthPride faces eviction; community volunteers organize to save services for LGBT youth

Terrance McPahul

Two ad-hoc committees of community volunteers will try to assess the current financial and legal status of YouthPride and insure that at least some services for youth continue should Atlanta’s troubled LGBT youth agency close.

YouthPride has received an eviction notice for its current facility in Inman Park, Board Chair Jordan Myers told a group of LGBT leaders and allies who attended a meeting Jan. 25 at AID Atlanta convened by gay teacher Charlie Stadtlander to discuss the YouthPride crisis.

Myers said he could not recall the date the eviction would take place.

YouthPride leases its office from Inman Park United Methodist Church.
