Click here to support Help Three QTPOC Fatties get to the AMC! by Cory Briana

tierracita:

Dear community of friends, family, and supporters.

We are three queer fatties of color and this will be our first time attending the Allied Media Conference. We really need your support getting there! 

The Allied Media Conference is in Detroit, Michigan June 19th-22nd. Our workshop was accepted and we are excited to present as part of theAbundant Bodies track! We have not been in any way able to afford this conference in the past and it’s prevented us from even applying but this year we took a leap of faith and submitted a workshop proposal. Now that we have been accepted we want to make sure this dream opportunity becomes a reality.

The cost for the three of us to attend is pretty immense, especially considering our limited and different economic resources. We anticipated being able to cover a portion of the cost but we will need your help to get all three of us there. We hope that our vibrant community of fatties, QTPOC, friends and family will help us make this trip possible. 

We need help covering the following costs:

Plane tickets $1800 (flights from Portland to Detroit are ~650 and flights from Salt Lake City are ~$550)
Housing $500 (we found an airbnb across the street from the university that would allow us to room together and cook meals to save money)
Transportation/taxis $100
Registration $150 (we were awarded an additional $150 from AMC to use towards registration but we would like to contribute more to the conference beyond that amount)

Trip Total 2550 + ~150 for indiegogo fees

Grand total 2700

Anything we raise here above and beyond this amount will go towards food and supplies for our workshop and our rewards offered here. 

If you can’t donate (and we totally understand that many folks won’t be able to), we hope that you will still support us by spreading the word or consider donating items/skills that we can add to our rewards offered.

We do this work to leave evidence of ourselves, those of us who are simultaneously unseen and hypervisible in our queer, fat, brown bodies. Please help us in doing this work!

Thank you! 

Cory, Jess, and Esther

Check out our workshop description!

DANGER! Excessive Consumption of Selfies

What makes our fat self-representation consumable? We’ll look at the ways we make our own images and why we create these images, why they’re valuable, subversive and how they can reinforce the same oppressive systems we resist. We aim to build connection and community for fat folks IRL, online and build our media presence. We’ll identify the components of desirability that influences and control how our fat bodies are consumed and produce selfies documenting our exploration into fat self-imagery

You know you wanna help us get to the AMC! Please donate or reblog:)

I have femme daddy issues.
Guess that’s what happens when both mom and dad are incarcerated half your life. You land up with a broke queer as fuck hotmess, anti-authoritarian, prison abolitionist weirdo like me.

Biking for No More Deaths

tierracita:

My dear friend Leah (a super rad qpoc nurse who has done past work with Decolonize Portland and Critical Resistance) is doing a cross country bike trip in part to raise money for No More Deaths, an organization that supports border work and the safety of those crossing who experience great risk and danger doing so.

This is a matter close to my heart, as you all know, and I am so proud of my friend for doing this fundraiser. We may not all have money to give but if you can all help spread the word, I would really appreciate it.

If you want to learn more about No More Deaths, I recommend checking out the info and links in this fundraiser link.

To a world without borders and racial violence!

Signal boost!

PDX QTPOC—room in a collective open! 

Feb 8th!

GUESS WHAT! The room is still open and we are getting close to the cut off point to manifest this qpoc collective magic! Do you know folks in portland? Can you network the shit out of this and send folks to me, tierracita, or djmextape?! 

the house has hardwood floors/washer dryer in the basement/ a huge garden with raised beds, rasberry bushes, a gas stove with two ovens , is centrally located, near several frequent service bus lines,  AND owned by a queer person of color. AND 515 includes all the utilities!

again, please support the housing grind of qpoc who do hella community work and are in need of stable housing!

Jrahrah and djmexxx-tape are the folks you’d be living with!

Jot@s! Help make this brown house happen for these folks! Spread the word!

I’ve put up too much, too long, and now I’m just too intelligent, too powerful, too beautiful, too sure of who I am finally to deserve anything less.
