JustUs ATL, a youth-led and youth-run organization, held its first fundraiser on Aug. 17 at the Phillip Rush Center with a Rainbow Jam, an an open mic and variety showcase that featured young people performing everything from drag to music therapy songs on the guitar to stand up comedy.
Closing out the night was Nipplephobia, an all transgender band that, well, specializes in making loud noise. And making their fans scream with joy.
Dozens of people packed the Rush Center for the fundraiser that included dinner donated by local restaurants and several raffles. Organizers said early estimates were JustUs ATL raised several hundred dollars at its first major event.
As an organization completely run by people ages 13-28, JustUS ATL provides a safe space for young LGBTQ people including field trips and discussion groups.
