2016 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

gina will curate, choreograph, and produce fat Black femme porn. Her project will create safer spaces for Black femmes to express and experience their sexuality in ways that are often not available. In addition, her work will give her community a chance to see honest depictions of some of the many ways that fat Black femmes engage with their bodies and sex. gina’s goal is the creation of a world where fat Black queer femmes are celebrated, can create their own spaces, produce their own media, and pay their rent while doing it.
