Voqal knows that taking risks with innovative, progressive ideas is necessary to advance social change. Our fellowship program is an investment in people as individuals and budding entrepreneurs. It is a talent accelerator aimed at giving those often overlooked by traditional funders a chance to enact their visions at center stage. In the final 2020 Voqal Fellowship spotlight, we take a look at Voqal fellow, Piper Rose, and their project, Our Queer Body.
Rose’s project, Our Queer Body, is a membership-sustained, online education platform that hosts Queer educators of diverse backgrounds and experiences to share their wisdom on topics related to embodied health including self-inquiry, self-expression, self-pleasure, pleasure with others, and healthy relationships.
Rose brings pure love to the party. Not like hippie-dippie-just-a-nice-thought love, but frightening joy bent on destroying the limitations of our neurological captors. Their artistic work revolves around creating and engaging with realities where freedom is paramount. This takes many forms including dance (parties), psychedelic group fitness, emceeing, installation art, performance art, ritual performance, and music.
The goal and purpose of their work is for the participant to feel curious about, and capable of, celebrating all that they are. Rose extends their creativity to the worlds of tech, events, and education. To enable their visions, and the visions of others, to tran-ifest, Rose is a general-purpose business witch. Ten years as an entrepreneur and counting!
