GIGFAT is LIVE!!
If you are a business owner or entrepreneur, HR representative, Hiring Manager, or any person with the agency or ability to hire an individual, please complete this form.
If you are a superfat or infinifat person who is Black (or a member of other marginalized groups as indicated below), please complete this form.
I created this program because I (desperately) need remote work as I’m not currently able to work outside my home due to my disability.
I have a degree and literal decades of work experience. I’m also infinifat, so it’s almost like none of it matters. I know I’m not alone.
I want to change that.
I want to match business owners, hiring managers, talent scouts, recruiters, and other stakeholders, with superfat and infinifat folx at all possible intersections, but ESPECIALLY (and with priority) those who are Black, then Indigenous, Latine, Asian, and other people of color, who may or may not be members of the LGBTQIA2S+ community and who may or may not be disabled. These will be people who need to work, are taking commissions, are freelancers, are in need of full-time jobs, or are in any way looking to secure viable, consistent income.
The intention is to operate without the typical fatphobia, capitalism, racism, homophobia, and overall oppression that the corporate machine espouses.
THERE IS REAL HARM TO FAT BLACK FOLX HAPPENING IN THIS COMMUNITY AS I WRITE THIS. It’s the insidious kind that causes homelessness and impoverishment at the hands of those who claim to tout “liberation”.
It has to stop. In the meantime, we still have needs that must be met.
As much as myself and people like me need to work, we are not looking to be subjected to further violence, so part of this program will involve intense discussion and agreement about how to best mitigate harm caused by the well-intentioned with privilege and power (IYKYK).
Sacred Space for Fat Bodies is committed to advocating the most marginalized fat people.
