Nolose is offering grants of <$100-$1000 to support projects that expand the reach of fat queer activism. In past years, SPAL projects have included day conferences in New York and Boston, a roller-skating party in Philadelphia, a fat clothing flea in Austin, and Flabulous!, an evening of drag, cabaret, and burlesque in San Francisco. We’ve heard you talking in the community about organizing racial justice teach-ins, fat swims, clothing swaps, dance parties and more–now’s your chance to propose a project and potentially get some help with the costs!
We are looking for projects that:
Support NOLOSE’s goals and mission,
Provide resources, access and/or voice to groups that have historically been marginalized within fat activist communities and to under-resourced regions with less visible fat activist communities,
Explore and celebrate intersectionalities,
Are challenging, weird, boisterous, empowering and FUN!
Apply by January 2, 2015! We will be announcing awardees in January 2015.
