NOLOSE 2008

And anoth­er announce­ment, this one at the request of Ste­fanie:

The date has been set! Mark your cal­en­dars for NOLOSE ’08: Sep­tem­ber 26th through the 28th (Fri­day-Sun­day). Meet us by the pool at the Clar­i­on Hotel and Con­fer­ence Cen­ter in Northamp­ton, Mass­a­chu­setts for a week­end packed with fat­tas­tic fun, food, friends and oth­er good stuff!

We’re all hard at work, plan­ning to make this year’s con­fer­ence the best ever! There are a lot of excit­ing things in the works. The Clar­i­on has charm, a great loca­tion and a staff that is already excit­ed to hang out with all of us. As always, choos­ing a venue was no easy feat. We have a very diverse pop­u­la­tion and we have lots of fac­tors to take into con­sid­er­a­tion. All in all, we are pret­ty psy­ched about the Clar­i­on, and we are sure most of you will be too.

Keep your eyes open for more detailed infor­ma­tion about the con­fer­ence as it becomes avail­able and, as always, if you have some ideas about what you’d like to see at NOLOSE this year, let us know! Expect to see a call for work­shops in the very near future, because that’s how we roll.

For more infor­ma­tion about NOLOSE and to keep up with the cal­en­dar and new infor­ma­tion about the upcom­ing con­fer­ence, please vis­it nolose.org.

NOLOSE is a vol­un­teer- run orga­ni­za­tion ded­i­cat­ed to end­ing the oppres­sion of fat peo­ple and cre­at­ing vibrant fat queer cul­ture. NOLOSE start­ed out as the Nation­al Orga­ni­za­tions for Les­bians of SizE. As the years passed and the orga­ni­za­tion grew, we changed our mis­sion to include not only a broad­er com­mu­ni­ty of queer women—dykes, les­bians and bisex­u­al women—but also trans­gen­dered peo­ple.

NOLOSE and the annu­al NOLOSE Con­fer­ence are explic­it­ly trans-inclu­sive. We want to make it clear that NOLOSE invites all fat queer women, all fat trans and gen­der-vari­ant folks and our allies to par­tic­i­pate.

  • So what about a fat, old straight guy? No luck?

    Why don’t you con­tact them? You might feel a litte out­num­bered, but if you’re queer-friend­ly they prob­a­bly wouldn’t say you couldn’t go 🙂

    Where’s your Gra­vatar, mis­ter? (I’m get­ting spoiled already by this pho­to thing, and love putting faces with names.)
