LANDWHALE Book Tour LA Stop at The Plus Bus- Panel Recap

Hi babes! Last Thursday I was invited to sit on a panel at The Plus Bus with Bevin and Saucye West for Jes Bakers LA stop for her newly released book Landwhale

I had such a great time! We talked dating while fat, finding our way back when we're having "bad" days, community, how being vulnerable can change our lives and how Fat Tumblr has literally saved so many of our lives <3 We also shared and crowsourced some ways to deal with the (mostly) fat phobic Medical Industrial Complex.  Special thanks to Bevin for moderating such a great conversation! 

I loved being in community for the evening with cute fat babes and our allies.

It had been a while since I've been in a space that intentionally centered fat folks and to be honest, it felt super amazing and beautiful. I'm so glad I was able to share space and hear folks stories and bring some of my own.  Thanks to Jes Baker for inviting me and for writing this book. Books by and for fat people are needed! MORE PLEASE!
