My Friend's Place + EVERYBODY LGBTQIA Youth Clothing Drive!

  • EVERYBODY

EVERYBODY is proud to be a drop off location for My Friend's Place LGBTQIA Youth clothing drive!

You can help My Friend’s Place in their quest to provide essential resources to young people by dropping off some of these necessities for youth in need. For homeless youth, the difference between being able to access the vital resources needed to survive and having to go without can be like the difference between day and night. 

Day & Night Wish List:

  • Hoodies
  • Jeans
  • Backpacks
  • Boxer Shorts
  • Sleeping Bags
  • Blankets
  • Warm Socks
  • Flashlights

Please drop off items with the front desk person during our normal hours of operation. All items will be given to My Friend's Place during the donation period. Thank you for your support!

My Friend’s Place is a day shelter and resource center serving youth experiencing homelessness in Los Angeles ages 12-25, their children and animal companions. LGBT youth make up a substantial segment of young people we serve, with 40% of our youth identifying as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or questioning compared to 10% of youth not experiencing homelessness. For the young people that come to My Friend’s Place, the difference between being able to access the vital resources needed to survive and having to go without can be like the difference between day and night.

About the instructors: 

Leanne Pedante is a certified Group Fitness Instructor and lover of boxing, running, and lifting heavy things. She grew up on the east coast and lived a past life as a cigarette-smoking, booze-drinking, graphic designer before moving to California and changing things up. Although her relationship with exercise was not always a healthy one, movement now serves her as a tool for mental and physical health, and happiness. Leanne's goal is to help others turn exercise into a tool that truly serves them.

Megan Flowers is an ISSA certified personal and group trainer. She is also certified through the Pilates Method Alliance as a Pilates mat and Reformer instructor and as well as a certified SPINNING instructor. 

I believe in the progress and not perfection philosophy. We are given this one body, this one home and it is up to us to treat it how we decide. It about creating the body that you will be your infinite body, wherever you may be at that time in your life. Its not always possible to be in our tip top shape or give the best performance. This is about being the best you that you are today.

Join us at EVERYBODY for a special Sound Bath series hosted by our friends at 5EveryDay!

Thursday May 4, 2017

8:30 PM

Times are terrifying, so it's time to chill out. Next week, Thursday May 4th, join us and Electric Sound Bath for EVERYBODY Chill Out #2.

EVERYBODY Chill Out is a soothing music series we host at EVERYBODY, a radically-inclusive gym and wellness center in Cypress Park. Every month, a different artist gives a sound bath, and the proceeds go to a different charity. 

Electric Sound Bath are LA's premiere experimental New Age group. Ang Wilson—on modular synth and singing bowls—and Brian Griffith—on bass and electronics—are inspired by the Integratron, the alien dome out in Joshua Tree, but you won't need to go any further than San Fernando Road.

Do bring a blanket, pillow, or a yoga mat, though.

This event is FREE for Club 5 & EVERYBODY members! For everyone else, we're asking for a $5 Donation to the Downtown Women's Center.

Space is limited, so please RSVP below here:  RSVP
