A-Camp Spring 2015: We’ve Got A Campership WITH TRAVEL For You!

Hello human beings who dream of Mount Feelings! If you want to come to A-Camp but just can’t afford the tuition and travel, then have we got good news for you!

A wonderful resplendent anonymous human has donated a campership WITH travel expenses to one lucky human. She works with LGBTI refugees overseas and because that’s her particular area of interest, she’d really love to get applications from anyone who does LGBTI activism overseas or any newer LGBTI immigrants or Americans. But she is also “happy to help anyone in need.”


To apply for this campership, please email your application to cool [at] autostraddle [dot] com. Let us know:

  • Your name
  • Your age
  • Where you live
  • Why you need A-Camp and deserve this Campership!
  • How much you estimate your travel would cost (She’s estimating a cap of $1,500 for travel, but she’s flexible — if you estimate your travel would be over $1,500, then let us know how you could cover the rest if that’s necessary.)

You have until Monday, March 2nd to apply! MAKE IT HAPPEN, KITTENS. We want so desperately to see all of your shining faces at this camp, so send in those applications and make all of our collective dreams come true. The time is now, take the world into the palms of your hands, etc.

  1. Whoever you are, masked stranger, you are a hero to some lucky queermo out there and that makes you a hero to me.

  2. OH MY GOSH. Whoever donated this is now absolutely my hero. I actually cried a little at seeing this much generosity. <3<3<3

  3. Are you allowed to nominate a friend? I know she deserves a shot at this, but reckon she might not think she does.

    • I think you should convince your friend to apply! Because it’s such a large and significant gift, we want to be sure that the person we give it to is willing and able to accept it.

  4. May you always have health insurance and never need it, person who works with LGBTI refugees and donates a full campership with travel expenses

  5. Anonymous human, you are an amazing person bringing whatever lucky being wins the campership to Mt. Feelings. Thank you!
