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. For December, we have set up a special HOLIDAY HELP fund that will give people with children $200 and people without children $100 to help at the holidays.

I have applied for the CRB/EI and I think it will take at least 7 days before I get the funds
I will be applying for the CRB/EI in the next 10 days

I do not qualify right now for the CRB/EI

Rather not say
Are there other status/legal reasons why you might not be able to get financial support from the government at some point in the next 30 days? For example, if you do not have a SIN number or do not have Permanent Resident or Citizenship status. [You can skip this question]
Rather not say
Are you still working part-time at a low paying job?
Rather not say
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.
If you are a DJ, performer or artist, what name might be know you by? Do you have a website or Instagram account that shows what you do? [OPTIONAL]
We might be able to arrange some free advice and support for you in the future. What kind of expert advice or support would you like? If you click some of these options, we will email you if they become available:
I would like help applying for the CRB/EI
I would like help doing my taxes and I have not done them for over 3 years
I would like help doing my taxes and I am a performer, drag queen or musician
I would like help doing my taxes from last year
I would like legal support/advice to deal with my landlord
I would like legal support/advice to deal with my employer
I would like legal support/advice to deal with the people I live with
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.
