Scenes from Fat: the Play, a play some friends and I cowrote and performed about being fat queer femmes. We entered into Frontera Festival, a short play festival, in Austin and performed initially on Friday. We were then chosen for Best of the Week, and after Saturday’s performance have been selected to go on to Best of the Festival. We will perform two more times this week.

This play was written by BunnyDanJulesAltheaNicoleSandy, and myself and directed by Jules.

The director’s note goes as follows:

We are a group of fat femme-identified queers. Most of us are not actors and don’t identify as writers, but we have stories to tell. For two months, we have been meeting to talk and eat and cry and laugh and write about living in fat bodies. How do our different race, gender and class identities affect our experiences as fat people? How do we undo the internalized shame our culture has taught us? For so long this word has been used against us- to dehumanize us and to pathologize us:

Fat adjective: (of a person or animal) having a large amount of excess flesh.

But fat is not lazy. Fat is not ugly. Fat is not stupid. Fat is fun. Fat is beautiful. Fat is smart. Fat is sexy. 

Take a moment to consider how you think about fat people; about the fat people you see on t.v., the fat people you see in the super market, the fat people that you love. 

This is for you. But it is also for us. We ask you to bear witness to our reclamation.”

Fat babes making art about being fat babes is always relevant to everyone’s interests.

Powerful portraits of the Liberians who beat Ebola 

To help humanize the overwhelming statistics, Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer and senior staff photographer at Getty Images, John Moore, visited an Ebola treatment center of the organization, Doctors Without Borders in Paynesville, Liberia. At the treatment center, survivors spoke about the brothers, sisters, husbands and wives they lost due to the disease. They also spoke of recovery, stigmas they continue to face in their villages and renewed hope.

There’s TWO WEEKS LEFT to take or share our survey on barriers to transgender healthcare with researchers from University of Louisville.
PLEASE REBLOG, SIGNAL BOOST, AND SHARE WHERE APPROPRIATE! Thank you!!
To Whom It May Concern:My name is Jayden Thai and I am currently conducting a research project under the supervision of Dr. Stephanie Budge as part of my doctoral program, collaborating with Kentucky Health Justice Network.The aim of this project is assess the healthcare access and barriers of transgender individuals in Kentucky (including but not limited to people who identify as transgender male/transman, transgender female/transwoman, genderqueer, stealth, binary, non-binary).To qualify for the study, participants must identify as transgender, have sought/received healthcare services in Kentucky, and are over the age of 18. Participation involves completing an online questionnaire that will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete.The information collected may or may not benefit you directly; however, you will have the opportunity to reflect on experiences with accessing healthcare. Some people may find this to be helpful. Additionally, the information learned in this study may be helpful to others in understanding how transgender individuals access healthcare in Kentucky. This could lead to important applications in public health services and social justice advocacy.It is important to us that the research reflects the wide range of identities and experiences of those who have sought/received healthcare in Kentucky, so we strongly encourage the participation of individuals who are often left out of other studies, e.g., those who live stealth and people with non-binary identities.If you are interested in being a part of this study, you can complete the questionnaire here:

You’ve broken out in a cold sweat. You’re short of breath. And you feel pressure in your chest. You’ve got health insurance and know you should be going to the emergency room — yet you don’t.

The situation seems to defy logic, but now imagine that you’re living in a small, conservative community. You’re a transgender man. And your primary care doctor is more than 100 miles away because you were humiliated by the staff during your visit to the local doctor’s office. You’ve heard horror stories about the local hospital.

This isn’t hypothetical. It’s a situation that plays out in small towns and large cities across the nation. According to a landmark survey by Lambda Legal, 70 percent of transgender people and 56 percent of lesbian, gay, and bisexual people have reported discrimination in health care services. And large numbers reported being refused care outright — with transgender people, people of color, and people living with HIV being disproportionately denied treatment.
