Menla Mountain Retreat
September 1-3, 2006
Phoenicia, New York
Come and get it: dancing, activism, fat video, workshops, and this year: nature lovin’, an outdoor pool & swimming pond ...and real community.
This year's conference will be at the gorgeous Menla Mountain Retreat Center in Phoenicia, NY - and we'll have the facilities to ourselves! We can’t wait to let it all hang out and recharge in this intimate setting.
We’re so excited to meet again and recharge our batteries. NOLOSE is an amazing opportunity to really feel the fat power both in our numbers, and in ourselves. Finally, a place where our diverse bodies, ideas, and sexualities all fit.
For those who have never attended, NOLOSE is one weekend you will never forget: fat women and transfolks from different generations and backgrounds and geographies come together. We brainstorm; flaunt it; dance; flirt; play; swim; celebrate; try new moves; create social change, art, and fat culture; and feel the big fat love. We are an ever-changing community. Fat-positive allies (specifically, women & transfolks) are also welcome!
Don't miss this notorious fat activist, burlesque performer, fighter for social justice, and all-around rabble-rouser as she tells it like it is! Heather is a longtime member of the NOLOSE community. A former member of the NOLOSE Board of Directors, Heather left her job as a community liaison for the Triangle Foundation in Detroit in 2000 to move to found and direct Big Burlesque: The Original Fat-Bottom Revue in San Francisco.
