For nearly 16 years, a 52-year-old single mother of two has been serving the Los Angeles LGBTQ+ community’s late night and afterhours club and bar crowd with hotdogs and tamales.
Rosy Milagro Rosales Gil started making and selling her food 15 years ago outside of Faultline. She set up a second stand outside of Bullet Bar, according to the Los Angeles Blade. A few weeks ago, Gil’s food truck, according to her friends Matias Gomez Constenla and Charlie Matula, was “tragically” stolen.
“In that van was everything she used to cook her delicious food. This has been a huge blow to her financially and emotionally since it’s her main source of income. She has been a staple in feeding the queer LA nightlife and we must help her,” Constenla and Matula said.
Gil is currently cooking with borrowed equipment and relying on others for transportation. Gil’s friends Contenla and Matula set up a GoFundMe to garner support from the LGBTQ+ community whom she has served for years.
“You may recognize her from working at The Bullet, Faultine, Ostbahnhof, and more recently you can find her every Friday and Saturday night at the Eagle LA,” Constenla and Matula said in the GoFundMe. “That is why we are starting this GoFundMe, so she doesn’t have to take on all the burden financially on replacing everything that was stolen from her.”
As of June 17, the GoFundMe has raised $4,186 of the $20,000 goal
