Fat Femmes Write: Expanding Media for Fat Femmes

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

When fatness and femmeness are depicted in media, what are the expectations placed upon our community? We will hold a collaborative media-making workshop that centers fat femmes. We will cultivate writing using prompts we've gathered about how our bodies color our experiences. We will also explore alternative forms of media and share our own truths from our zine. Lastly, we will investigate how our proximities to oppression shape the media we create. Participants will foster a greater sense of self through vulnerable conversations.
