Submit! Nearly There is a zine project meant to address the serious absence and silencing of stories about the experiences of queer people of color.
Please help us bring Vivek Shraya to Boston for QWOC Week by donating at least $10 towards his roundtrip airfare and transportation costs.
Summary: Vivek is a Queer, South Asia, Singer/Songwriter, and Author, who’s been gracious enough to agree to participate at QWOC Week for FREE. He lives in Toronto, so we’ll need your help to cover his roundtrip airfare and transportation costs. Can you help? Vivek would potentially be reading from his new illustrated book at OUT OF THE BOX on Monday August 2nd, and possibly performing again at OUTSPOKEN on Thursday August 5th.
How You Can Help: We’re fundraising for this grassroots style; we figured if 8 organizers asked 5 friends for at least $10 (more is great too, we have other costs to cover!), we’d reach our $400 fundraising goal within 24 hours. And we’re sure we can do it.
Our Gratitude: For each $10 you donate, you’ll get one ticket to OUTSPOKEN: LGBT People of Color Spoken Word and Performance Showcase (at which Vivek may perform!). OUTSPOKEN tickets are $20/pp this year, so we’re essentially offering them to you at half-off in appreciation for your early donation!
