Big Ass Telethon to End Metronormativity
Wussy Magazine, Queer Appalachia, and Southern Fried Queer Pride join forces for a big telethon.

This special live-streamed telethon spectacular will feature drag artists, musicians, comedians, dancers, and more. The event will be used to raise money for the newly formed Appalachian/Southern Queer Artist Fund, an emergency fund set up to monetarily support the featured artists, not just during the COVID-19 crisis, but further and beyond in the form of micro-grants.
The Appalachian/Southern Artist Fund will be dedicated to our dearly departed friends and collaborators -- Bryn Kelly (1981-2016) co-creator of Queer Appalachia and Matt Jones (1991-2018) co-creator of WUSSY.
