APPLICATION: Emergency Survival Fund for LGBTQ2S artists, performers & tip-based workers
Glad Day has set up a emergency fund to help LGBTQ2S artists, performers & tip-based workers. This fund is not meant to help people recover lost income.
This is a fund to SWIFTLY HELP LGBTQ2S PEOPLE WHO CANNOT PAY FOR FOOD, MEDICINE, RENT AND NECESSITIES because most of their income doesn't come from an employer. We anticipate that we will be overwhelmed with requests - we will help as many people as we can, based on need and our available funds.
TO DONATE GO TO:
NOTE: IF YOU RECEIVE FUNDS NOW OR IF YOU APPLY AND DO NOT RECEIVE FUNDS YOU CAN APPLY AGAIN IN 10 DAYS. We know that things are changing fast and we want to get funds out quickly, so getting funds once doesn't prevent you from getting funds again.

Are there identity factors that might make getting financial support or new work a challenge? This could include gender identity, race, health, mental health, dependants, status, etc.
Is there anything else that you would like to share? Please don't feel the need to justify yourself or plead for support. YOU DESERVE SUPPORT. And if we had things like a Basic Income or better social supports then Glad Day wouldn't need to launch a campaign like this. So please don't feel the need to explain yourself. But let us know if there is something that we might not think about when making our decision.
