What We Do

Nolose organizes regular national conferences and supports and funds regional programming to bring together members of all of our diverse fat LGBT, queer, same gender loving, trans, and sex positive communities.

We celebrate our whole selves, build supportive community, work on building strong intersectional justice movements that acknowledge all of our humanity and importance, and bring together fat liberation activists, racial and economic justice workers, fatshionistas, fat studies scholars, culture-makers, food justice innovators, body positive bloggers, BBW/BHM party planners,  flabulous performers, plus size business owners, and you!

Nolose community members hold fundraisers to cover the costs of running conferences and our need-based financial aid program, People of Color Travel and Lodging Fund, and scholarships for people of color and superfat, trans, and disabled people. We also participate in community-wide conversations to shape the future of the organization and define the kinds of social movements we want to build, participate in committees to run the conference and the nonprofit organization, do outreach, and create vibrant fat queer culture everywhere!
