Underwear Party Saves Puppet Theater

Puppet_1Puppeteer Tim Young found an innovative way to save the theater he runs which performs educational programs for underprivileged gay youth — he created a weekly underwear party for gay men to fund it:

“And although Young can sound a bit defensive—’If someone says, ‘You’re throwing a party for gay men in their underwear!’ I say, ‘Well, I don’t see you paying my rent or giving me money to buy glitter’’—the guests approve. ‘You come here for the social atmosphere, but you’re also helping kids,’ said Mike, 34, a burly lawyer, as he retrieved a plastic bag filled with his clothes. ‘I’m all for that.’

Let’s just hope the two events stay mutually exclusive.
