Rosy needs our help

Rosy has been a staple in the los angeles queer community for over 15 years, feeding and nourishing us with her mexican/gautemalan street food outside of countless queer establishments. Starting off selling hotdogs and tamales outside of Faultine over 15 years ago, she set up a second stand outside of Bullet bar, and has also been serving us late into the night at the queer warehouse parties such as Ostbahnhof and Por Detroit among countless others.   Rosy is a single mother of two, and due to her status she is not eligile for any type of covid relief or unemployment.  She has lost all of her work due to nightlife shutting down, and is unable to pay rent, utilities, and groceries since march. She is currently relying on limited supplies from food banks to feed her family but supplies are limited and they hardly last the week. Rosy also has an elderly mother in Guatemala who has relied on her for small monthly payments to eat and pay for medicine, who she has also been unable to help since March.

Rosy has been an integral part of the queer community in LA and needs our help. She has nowhere else to turn to and is facing eviction, homelessness, massive debt and a lack of food. She has always accepted us with open arms and nourished us late into the night, and now it is our turn to help keep her on her feet!

Our goal of $30 000 will not cover all her expenses but is a good start to help her avoid eviction, pay utilities/phone bills,  and provide some food to her family until she can get back to work.
UPDATE: Due to the overwhelming support we have increased our goal to $40 000, which will help cover almost all her current debt

Thank you for your help!54647502_1613424451720560_r.jpeg

As per gofundme request, please note the following:

1. Victor Rodriguez is organizing this campaign on behalf of Rosy
2. I am from Los Angeles
3. My relationship to Rosy is a work relationship, she has sold food at my events for the past 10+ years
4. The funds will be used to pay her rent, food and utilities since March and for the next few months
5. Due to Rosy's immigration status which disqualifies her from Gofundme deposits, funds will be deposited into my account and  I will deliver her the money via bank transfer.
