Inclusive Abundance: Fatness, Oppression and Us

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

Did we bring the patriarchy with us when we built fat activist communities? We will discuss how oppressive beauty standards, ableism, racism, homophobia and misogyny are carried forward in fat activism, as well as ways to reject that paradigm, embracing our intersectional identities and our grotesque. This will be a conversation about how fat activism can and should challenge “acceptable” fatness. We will audio record participants’ answers to questions like “What does access to fat activism look like?” Answers will be shared with permission.
