On June 22nd in Los Angeles, a fundraiser was held to benefit the Los Angeles homeless youth resource center and day shelter, My Friend’s Place, as well as an upcoming documentary film about the homeless LGBT youth issue, Lost In America.
The event, which also featured a play reading, was held at the Renberg Theatre of the LGBT Center in Los Angeles was put together by the Ammunition Theatre Company (Ammo) and Chhibber Mann Productions.
Before the event kicked off, I grabbed some time with Vinny Chhibber and Mike C. Manning as well as attendees from Ammo including Yara Martinez (Jane The Virgin), Karla Mosley (The Bold and the Beautiful), Tina Huang (Rizzoli and Isles), Arjun Gupta (How To Get Away With Murder), Lost In America director Rotimi Rainwater and Los Angeles County Assessor Jeffrey Prang. They each had alarming information about the state of homeless LGBT youth but offered up suggestions how anyone can help even if not in the Los Angeles area or a large city.
