Transgender Individuals Living Their Truth (TILTT) held its first canned food drive this year and donated its proceeds to the newly established Saint Lost & Found group.
Saint Lost & Found, formed in November, is a grassroots effort by the Atlanta chapter of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence that works to find emergency shelter for Atlanta homeless LGBT youth.
Courtney-Evans said it was also important to her and members of TILTT to assist an organization that was serving transgender youth as well as gay, lesbian and bisexual young people.
"To be frank with you, there are events with organizations that say LGBTQ but the 'T' is still silent. I wanted to make sure the whole acronym was helped when we gave our canned goods," she said.
