a special treehouse for fat people

This is one of my favorite zines I ever made, a fat liberation zine called A Special Treehouse for Fat People.

I talk about how doctors treat me about my fatness, beginner’s fat activism, fat yoga, people’s complex food beliefs and how I navigate them as I prepare food for big events, loving myself unconditionally, shedding old beliefs.  There’s the poem that started the zine, and some super-cute drawings of bees.

It’s not really long, but there’s a second issue in the works.  I’d love to trade with you!  Please contact me to swap addresses.  I’m at gmail’s robotmad.

Moving Toward the Ugly: A Politic Beyond Desirability

“People are shrinking and squeezing themselves into what counts as able-bodied under capitalism, and I think most people are doing the same thing with gender. Most people are gender non-conforming and we are squeezing ourselves into these categories to keep ourselves safe.” Mia Mingus is my hero!
