Pull for Pride Atlanta will benefit Lost N Found Youth, a non-profit dedicated to ending homelessness for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, queer (LGBTQ+) and all sexual minority youth. 

Lost N Found Youth Atlanta’s primary services include: 24/7 phone, texts, and email response • Emergency and transitional housing • Emergency clothing and food for youth on the street • Mental health evaluations and counseling • Referrals to HIV/STD testing, health and dental services • Assistance for lost or stolen birth certificates, driver’s licenses or state ID cards • Referrals to GED training/testing and other education resources • Resume writing/editing and interview skills training

At the event, over 60 lifter-fundraisers will take turns deadlifting progressively higher weights, aiming to match dollar for pound to help lift up these often-unnoticed homeless youth. The deadlift, for the uninitiated, involves stepping up behind a loaded barbell, grasping the bar, standing up with the weight, and setting it back down on the ground. It is a simple lift that is imbued with meaning: coming forward to face a challenge, and succeeding through the simple mechanism of one’s own strength.
