Girl Scout's Cookies Are a Hit at West Hollywood Gay Bars
WeHo Bars Are a Great Place for Cookie Sales
A Girl Scout from Glendale, Calif., found a ready market for her cookies in nearby West Hollywood — the city’s gay bars.
The young scout, Siena, recently sold about 100 boxes per weekend in WeHo’s LGBT Rainbow District, selling out her entire supply of cookies.
“Siena is participating in a cookie sale to earn money to support Girl Scouts, and we thought what better place to sell cookies than in West Hollywood,” her mother, Jenn Levin, told WeHo Times. “We were here last weekend. A guy named Adam said he ate through all his boxes. He came back this weekend and said, ‘Are you going to pay for my Weight Watchers?’ I told him that I’m a hypnotherapist, so if he ever wants to cut back on the sweets, to call me.”
Siena’s younger sister and her aunt, West Hollywood resident Lulie LaPlaca, a producer on TV shows including The Bachelor, accompanied her as well.
Making the Sale Fun
“I was dreading selling Girl Scout cookies, but the gays have made it so much fun that now I’m happy to drive 40 minutes to sell cookies,” Jenn Levin said. “We were so excited that drag queen Billy [Francesca] bought the last four boxes of Lemon-ups, so mom could go home and relax with a glass of wine.”
While right-wingers are trying to whip up hysteria about children being exposed to LGBTQ+ culture, including drag queens, Siena was unfazed, WeHo Times reports. During her first weekend selling in WeHo, she asked her mother, “Why are there so many naked people?” The next weekend, however, when she was asked what she thought of the drag queens, she answered, “Yeah, l kind of expected that here.”
