Man organises gay orgy to raise funds for families of men who were killed

One Grindr user was surprised by an online philanthropist who contacted him with a unique way of fundraising.

A Grindr user invited to a gay orgy was surprised to discover the happening was more than just sex – it was also a showing of true community spirit. With sex.

Anton Flowers of California posted to Twitter a screen grab of the eyebrow raising exchange that took place on Grindr – “We having an orgy tonight. If u down to come,” said the message from the guy Anton had been speaking to.

Fair enough. It’s always nice to be invited. It was when Anton asked just where this gay orgy was to take place that things took a turn for the unusual:

“My house. Is 50 dollars to reserve a spot. And it’s around 10 people coming.”

Be it the invite itself or the sudden addition of a 50 dollar charge, Anton decided it wasn’t for him. But of course, he had to ask why there was a charge. The reply? “Cuz is to help the family of the dudes who got kill 2 nights ago.”

It’s possibly a first – a gay orgy to fundraise for funeral costs to help the families of two men who had been killed. Our thoughts go to the families of the deceased.

Social media obviously exploded over the (pretty sensationalist) message. How could they not?

While there were some who took the story quite seriously, most of the replies were very tongue in cheek. And pretty funny.

Who said there’s no community spirit?

One user quipped, “I require a credit card reader, a tax-exempt form, and pictures of the deceased as I enter the house.”

Anton’s sense of humour once again showed through as he replied to other Twitter users.

While some readers may be asking themselves if they’d like to show support for others by attending the event, or even just planning to go anyway, Twitter user Andrew Horton said what most of us are thinking.
