Friend of Marilyn

Friend of Marilyn (FOM) is a fat positive radio show on Access Manawatu 999AM. It provides counter programming to the normative discourses on fatness and obesity in our culture, hosting conversations in which accepted ideas and stereotypes about fatness are challenged. FOM believes that safe spaces for fat people are important, and the show is committed to providing a forum where fat people get to speak for themselves (not just have their lives thinsplained by others). FOM began in August of 2011, and is currently on a tour around the world – make sure your city is a spot today!

Why Be A Sponsor?

Sponsors are a crucial part of reaching the people who need this conference.  In the past we’ve been completely funded by registrations, most of which come in the final months.

Sponsors allow us to have a predictable budget to cover our hard costs, including technology upgrades to improve accessibility, and marketing to get the word out.

Any remaining funds will be added to the profits, which are shared among the organizers and speakers. Everyone who works on the conference gets paid, which helps those doing the work remain financially stable.  In exchange, we connect sponsors with people who can benefit from the services you offer.  The conference is all about teaching skills, making connections, and strengthening the community, and sponsors are a vital part of that.
