BBW Awards To Recognize The Humanitarians Of The BBW Community

LAS VEGAS, NV—It may be Summer, but that's not too early to begin thinking about the award season, and the 2nd annual BBW Award Show nominations site is not only open, but the first round of the nominees are already in. In particular, the nominees for the coveted Humanitarian of the Year award so far are Miss FreudianSlit, Kitty Stryker, Karla Lane, Angela White, Destiny Diaz, HousewifeSwag and April Flores. Each nominee has received a minimum of 50 votes, but there is still plenty of time for more nominees to come in before the November cut off. Those nominated for the Humanitarian award have been recognized by others in the community and their fans for their work to help elevate and uplift the BBW community (as well as the world at large). To further give back, the BBW Award Show has decided to give $1,000 to the charity of the winner’s choosing. “I feel incredibly fortunate to even be nominated for something as monumental as Humanitarian of the Year, but I can’t take the credit for solely representing the BBW community. It’s imperative that I recognize those before me and those alongside me in this journey. Together, we can continue to break the mold," said Taylor M, Housewifeswag, one of the 2019 nominees. "The charity I choose is TheBodyPositive.org for their continuous work in ending the harmful consequences of negative body image.” It is the goal of the BBW Award Show to represent the plus size community with acknowledgment of their hard work. The Humanitarian award really highlights the fact that the BBW community not only wants to give back to their own but also to the world around it. With so many opportunities and positivity that have come into the community, The BBW Award Show wants to set the precedent of always giving back to keep that flow of positivity constantly moving. With the community ever growing, there have been more categories added this year and the BBW Award Show has one of the most extended nomination periods running of any XXX awards show.  “I had no idea I was up for any award!" exclaimed Kitty Stryker, a 2019 nominee. "It feels amazing to be recognized for the work I do. A lot of my personal activism is offline, individual, and not photogenic, so it's often not noticed by the community at large. I'm delighted to be able to help people, whether it be around giving sex work safety advice, serving as a street medic at a protest, or helping someone wean off drugs. If I win, I believe I will donate half the winnings to the Florance Project, who offers free legal services to detained immigrants in Arizona, and the other half to the Degenerates, a trans-centered art collective that also does a lot of community support for LGBTQ folks.” The current nominees represent a wide array of those within the BBW community, which is just another way that the BBW Award Show is demonstrating inclusivity through the show. While coming from all walks of lives and creeds, one thing that every single Humanitarian nominee represents is respect for those currently under the banner of being a sex worker. They have selflessly championed to help sex workers of all kinds to get the rights and respect that they deserve and thus are being recognized for their efforts. “If I won the Humanitarian award I would love to donate the $1,000 to THORN," said Destiny Diaz, a 2019 nominee. "THORN is a digital defender of children. Technology is used to enable slavery, but it can also be used to disable slavery. They use technology to identify and rescue missing and exploited children. As both a sex worker and a mother, this organization hits my heart deep. SESTA/FOSTA is negatively affecting many forms of sex work, both online and off, but it is promoted as a shutdown of sex trafficking. SESTA/FOSTA won't stop sex trafficking or related illegal activity, it will only push it more underground, and make it even more difficult to save and rescue these children. This donation can help fund the development of software that can help identify missing and exploited children, and help make the internet a safer place for children.” Nominations for the 2019 BBW Awards are open in 16 categories, and the prizes this year have been described as "absolutely jaw-dropping." Those who wish to nominate someone may do so here. # # # If you would like more information about this topic, please contact Eliza Allure at email at [email protected]
