Hello Friends, Comrades and Family,
I am writing to ask for support in my travels to the Allied Media Conferece this year. My workshop “Radical Queer Sobriety” has been accepted and I am preparing to return to this fertile conference for more inspiration about liberation. I’m asking for help because I will be graduating this June, have no job lined up (am looking) and have just enough budgeted income from gigs to make ends meet but not enough to make it to the AMC.
I went last year and was caught off guard by the cost of food that I could eat. I have celiac disease and had to eat out at pretty pricey places every day since there was limited refridgerator space and no place to cook there. I also did not anticipate the cost of taxi prices or other costs. Here is the price break down:
-Around $550 for plane tickets (they go up and down and this is very rough estimate)
-$150 for food and Taxis
-$100 to cover some of the 7.9% plus $0.30 per donation cost of this site
Lifestyle photographer Grace Chon recently turned the camera on her 10-month-old baby Jasper and their 7-year-old rescue dog Zoey, putting them side-by-side in the some of the most adorable portraits ever.
