What the F is Filthy G.?
Filthy Gorgeous (Filthy G.) will be your future destination for unique, fun, fashionable, and affordable men’s underwear. We plan to carry brands that you already know and love such as Andrew Christian, Clever, Pikante, Armani, and more (let us know your favorite brands, cuts, and colors.) Filthy Gorgeous will be a company that empowers gay men to feel sexually superior every day! Please make a donation to Filthy Gorgeous!
What we want to do and how you can help:
We are looking to you, our friends, fans, and supporters of “the gays” to donate money to help us start our business and raise money for a great charity that helps support Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (LGBT) homeless youth. 60% of all donations collected will go to charities like the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center that provides LGBT homeless youth with hot meals, clothing, showers, support groups, career development/ education, HIV testing, and so much more! Please make a donation to Filthy Gorgeous!
Some facts about LGBT homeless youth:
- As many as 40% of homeless youth identify as LGBT.
- #1 factor contributing to LGBT homelessness is family rejection on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.
- #2 contributing factor is youth being forced out of their homes as a result of coming out as LGBT.
- 68% of LGBT homeless youth have experienced family rejection.
- More than half (54%) have experienced abuse in their family.
- Over 40% of the agencies that deal with LGBT homeless youth do not address these family-based issues.
- Why not? Lack of funding was identified as the primary barrier to improving services related to reducing LGBT homelessness.
So we want to start a business, why should you help?
We’re going to keep on giving! Once we’re open, we are going to continue to accept donations for this charity and we’re going to donate $1 for every piece of underwear we sell. Need more reasons? For every $5 or $10 donation we will give you access to a behind-the-scenes page where you can see exclusive model pictures, interviews with charities, designers, and more, and you’ll be automatically entered in a weekly drawing to be our featured Filthy Gorgeous All-Star on Facebook (LIKE us.)
