Announcements: Weekend Events, and free money from NOLOSE

By | May 8, 2009

SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY: Lessons From the Fat-o-sphere authors Marianne Kirby and Kate Harding will be turning up in Boston for a book reading and signing event. The event is sponsored by the Center for New Words and will be taking place at Lir Pub on Boylston Street at 1pm. As a bonus, both myself and occasional Fats contributor Julia will be reading from our pieces in the book as well. More info available here. Folks who’d like further social time afterwards are welcome to join those of us loosely adjourning to the Prudential Center mall when things wrap up.

FREE MONEY: Sort of.

NOLOSE is offering seed money of up to $1,000 to support projects that expand the reach of fat queer activism. 2007’s SPAL projects included an inspired Zine-making party in London, a fabulous Roller Skating party in Philadelphia, and the very successful Fat & Queer mini-conference in New York. We loved supporting those projects because they were creative, fun, informative, and community-based.
