ANOTHER LADY PARTS PLUS CAMPAIGN UPDATE

WE MADE IT! YOU MADE IT! We have reached our goal of $2200 and Lady Parts Plus is now officially happening! Can you tell we’re excited? We hope you’re excited, too.

THE CAMPAIGN IS STILL GOING ON. Perks are still available, and funds are still welcome, as the campaign goal was the very bare minimum we need (plus, Indiegogo keeps some of it for itself).

Every little bit more that you can give us would be great help toward making the new website, new channel and new content even better for you.

So, please go to our campaign page and give as much or as little as you can and get some of the fun perks. Want to chat? Want to be a guest on our Vlog? Want to be featured in our Supporters Hall of Fame? You can still do all of these. Just go to our campaign page and give!

To all our uber-super awesome contributors, we are deeply grateful for your generosity. We will be in touch in the coming weeks about redeeming perks. We are eager to thank you all properly.

So, get ready, folks. Lesbian Movie Club, Post Op: Holby City and Talking Teal are on! And who knows what else the future holds…

Woohoo!

LADY PARTS PLUS CAMPAIGN UPDATE

Hello Lady Parts friends,

It’s been a week since we launched our Lady Parts Plus Campaign , and we are delighted to report that we have raised 70% of the money we need to reach our goal and make Lady Parts Plus happen.

We are now only $600 away from our destination. If you are able to contribute, we urge you to do it sooner, rather than later. We have great plans for Lady Parts Plus and would like to get to work on it for you.

EVERY LITTLE BIT COUNTS. So far we’ve gotten major contribution from very few ultra-generous people. We know so many of you have emailed us and written comments in the past about how much you enjoy Lady Parts, and specifically Talking Teal, with all the great interviews, and Post Op: Holby City. Many of you have thanked us for the work we do and said you wanted to see more.

WELL, here is your chance to show us your appreciation for all the work we’ve done so far and here is your chance to make sure Lady Parts Vlogs keep going. It is all up to YOU.

To be clear, if we don’t reach our goal, THE VLOGS WILL HAVE TO END. There will be no more Post Op: Holby City, no Lesbian Movie Club, no new season of Talking Teal, and the regular Lady Parts vlogs will have to be posted less frequently.

IT IS UP TO YOU. SO, CONTRIBUTE NOW.

We look forward to a year full of great interactive fun. Let’s do this!

GIVE NOW TO THE LADY PARTS PLUS INDIEGOGO CAMPAIGN.

LADY PARTS ANNOUNCES LAUNCH OF NEW CAMPAIGN: LADY PARTS PLUS

INDIEGOGO CAMPAIGN: LADY PARTS PLUS

We, Liron Cohen and Mimi Torchin, started Lady Parts, a blog/Vlog dedicated to the women of television and film and the roles they play, as a venue to promote women’s work in the media and to celebrate the shows and films we love.

Over the past couple of years, Lady Parts has grown into a space where fans can gather, share ideas and points of view, and have fun, and our interactive Vlog has become a community we cherish.

This is why we want to be able to keep it going.

However, you all know how much work we put into these Vlogs, and after doing this completely free of charge for two years, we’ve reached the point where the Vlog needs to be able to support itself.

And we’ve found a way to do just that!

INDIEGOGO CAMPAIGN: LADY PARTS PLUS

We want to bring you your favorite Lady Parts Vlog series, like “Talking Teal,” “Post Op: Holby City,” and “Lesbian Movie Club,” and even expand into more Vlog series (it’s all up to you!), through an extremely affordable and flexible subscription model. SO affordable, it’s ridiculous!

For that, we need YOUR help. We are raising this very minimal amount of money to cover some of the initial costs, so that we can bring you a new and better website, a high quality channel, and a year full of Vlogs!

You’ve enjoyed our interviews and our interactive discussions before. Let’s keep them going!

WE’VE STARTED AN INDIEGOGO CAMPAIGN: LADY PARTS PLUS.

We have to meet the goal here in order to get started. So, please, give as much or as little as you can (starting with $1 and up!) — and get some fun perks on the way — and use the IndieGoGo sharing tools to spread the word and tell your friends to donate as much as they can, as well.

And once we’ve hit the goal, keep donating if you can. Every little bit helps us give you your favorite Vlogs about your favorite shows and movies.

Let’s do this!

(scroll down for FAQ)

FAQ

1) Does the backing money only support the campaign, or does it also go towards initial subscriptions?

Backing money only goes toward getting Lady Parts Plus up and running. There are a lot of initial costs that have to be covered. This money also helps to make sure that we can keep subscription fees to a minimum.

2) Is the backing additive? (If I give $25 this month and $75 in Feb before it closes, will there be a way of indicating multiple donations?)

It is our understanding that one can make multiple contributions. That is also a way to claim multiple perks — that must be done as separate contributions.

We understand that some of you would like to give more, but need to do it in “stages.” If a perk is unlimited ($25 & $50) or if one of the limited perks is still available, we will absolutely honor it, even if you had to do it in stages. For example, in this case, if you give $25 and then $75 and one of the ten $100 perks is still available, we will give you a thank you call.

3) If/when the goal is reached before the deadline, and someone still wants to donate, are they eligible for a call, chat, guest spot, or is that a limited time offer?

Our goal here is the very basic amount we must have to get started. However, every bit more would help us get you the best Lady Parts Plus experience right off the bat. This is why the campaign will continue to accept and welcome funds after the basic goal has been met. Perks will continue to be available, and new ones will be added!

4) Will all of the previous Lady Parts Vlogs, including interviews, still be available on YouTube, or will they transition over to Lady Parts Plus?

Any video we currently have on our YouTube channel will remain there and you can access it for free at any time (though, please consider clicking on an ad to help us there, too).

5) Will there be any new Vlogs/stuff added to your YouTube page, or is the new stuff trictly going to be through Lady Parts Plus? 

Yes! Lady Parts Plus will be a special channel for Vlog series (i.e. “Talking Teal,” “Post Op: Holby City,” “Lesbian Movie Club,” etc.) The original Lady Parts YouTube page will continue to be active and provide the general public new Vlogs and also little snippets from new Lady Parts Plus Vlogs.

6) Can I donate from outside the U.S.?

Yes! You can donate from almost anywhere in the world! That’s part of the beauty of Indiegogo, which accepts funds from most countries. That simply means your currency will be converted to dollars when you contribute.

Please let us know if you have any other questions, and we’ll be happy to clarify!

Thank you.

“WENTWORTH” NYC TALKING TEAL & FAN GATHERING 2017 – THE NEXT STAGE

Thank you to everybody who answered Ann’s survey last month. The vast majority of responders said they would prefer for the “Wentworth” fan gathering and Talking Teal event to take place in NEW YORK CITY! So here is what happens now.

THIS EVENT WILL ONLY HAPPEN IF ENOUGH OF YOU ARE INTERESTED — SO EMAIL ANN TO LET HER KNOW IF YOU ARE. 

THIS WILL ALSO ONLY HAPPEN IF SOMEONE IS WILLING TO HELP ANN ORGANIZE — SO LET HER KNOW IN YOUR EMAIL THAT YOU CAN HELP OUT.

ANN’S EMAIL: WentworthAU2017@gmail.com

This is the information that Ann has put together for the event:

Location: New York City

Time: April 7,8,9 in 2017

The approximate price for a hotel room that Ann found is $179 a night (x2 or 3 for the whole weekend), but you can make your own arrangements and probably find cheaper options.

A fan gathering will take place on the Friday night.

A Talking Teal lunch will take place Saturday afternoon and will cost $75.

You will make your own arrangements to come in (airfare, etc.), but we recommend trying to come in groups with people from your area.

THERE WILL BE NO CAST APPEARANCES IN THIS EVENT. This event is for the fans to finally meet one another and us and for everyone to have a fun weekend in the grandest city in the world.

So, again, if you are interested, you MUST email Ann. The event will only happen if enough people email her to say they have read all this information and are still interested in attending.

If you are having any problem or have any questions, feel free to ask us here, on social media, or in an email to LadyPartsVlog at gmail.com.

We hope to see you next year!

END OF BALLOT

SECOND, we hope that you are working on your personal contribution to the Talking Teal party. Please send us any kind of written, visual and/or aural contribution that will demonstrate and celebrate your feelings for “Wentworth” and/or “Talking Teal.” It can be a video of you re-enacting your favorite scene, a picture of you (or your pet!) dressed as your favorite character, a poem you wrote, a rap you recorded, or it can simply be a little note to express your feelings (it would be great if it could be taped, either an audio or video recording, so that it would feel more personal). It can be anything that you come up with. Be creative, be emotional, be anxious — or be all of the above! Please email those to LadyPartsVlog at Gmail.com as soon as you can. The final deadline is Saturday, August 6th, at 2pm EST. (If you need to send a big file via a third-party website, please email me first and let me know. If you don’t know how to send a big file, please email me and I will help you out).

THIRD, get your PJ picture ready! You’ve asked for it to be a pajama party, shot from our bedroom, and we’re game! But what’s a party without partygoers? So get your PJ pictures ready and share them on Twitter/Instagram when you watch the party Vlog!

If at any point you need help with any of these or have any questions, please let us know. If you have other ideas for the party, also, please let us know.

We are looking forward to celebrating the conclusion of a great Talking Teal season with our fabulous fans… that’s YOU!
