    I’ve worked out in some capacity everyday this week.

    I feel really good. But i don’t want to put this on fb because i know folks will think I’m trying to lose weight but I’m not.

    Sigh, but it would probs make things awkward if i was honest and said that moving my body makes me…

    Thanks boo! It helps knowing others get it!

    I feel really good. But i don’t want to put this on fb because i know folks will think I’m trying to lose weight but I’m not.

    Sigh, but it would probs make things awkward if i was honest and said that moving my body makes me feel grounded and in touch with my body and that being able to focus on physical feeling when ive been feeling supper depressed and not wanting to deal.emotionally is really important for my mental health.

    Ugh.

    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 

    (read more about us and our workshop at the link!)

    We’re $40 away from a $1000! You all are amazing and I am so thankful for every like, reblog, and donation. I’m so excited that we’ll actually be able to make it to the AMC!

    Kehinde Wiley’s paintings often blur the boundaries between traditional and contemporary modes of representation. Rendered in a realistic mode–while making references to specific Old Master paintings–Wiley creates a fusion of period styles, ranging from French Rococo, Islamic architecture and West African textile design to urban hip hop and the “Sea Foam Green” of a Martha Stewart Interiors color swatch. Wiley’s slightly larger than life size figures are depicted in a heroic manner, as their poses connote power and spiritual awakening. Wiley’s portrayal of masculinity is filtered through these poses of power and spirituality.

    Contemporary Art Week!

    Hey y’all. So I wrote a thing. 

    TW: suicide

    My friend Samantha wrote this pivotal and important piece for BGD. It’s very important that we all read this, if possible.

    I always do this. I’m evil and enjoy ruining anyone’s day who think they own the world.

    I love it!!!
