Celebrating the diversity, resilience, wisdom, and beauty of all bodies
The Abundant Bodies Media Track, in its second year, will explore how we can use media and art to transform mainstream ideas around abundant bodies, challenge fat phobia, and create resilient communities. We will broaden the discourse around fat activism by centering the experiences of indigenous, Black, People of Color, Dis/abled, Supersized, Trans and Queer fat folks. Abundant / thick / fat bodies are the target of hate, policing and negativity, even within our organizing communities. How do we unlearn mainstream ideas of what a body should look like and learn to celebrate the diversity, resilience, wisdom, and beauty of all bodies?
This track is coordinated by Kytara Epps; Amanda Levitt, Fat Body Politics; Karimu Oliver; Najee Haynes-Follins; Aruna Boodram
