    DESTROYING THE COVID-19 FAT JOKE

    DESTROYING THE COVID-19 FAT JOKE

    In this episode, we’re talking about FAT JOKES THAT ARE ON OUR LAST NERVE IN QUARANTINE TIMES feat. our fave recurring anon guest, Your Fat Friend.


    CALL TO ACTION: Support the Black and Indigenous Communities of Chicago.


    You have probably heard about the extreme violence the US government is deploying on Portland protestors. The president announced on July 20th that he was expanding this “federal crackdown” to other major cities, notably Chicago. Chicago obviously has a much larger population of Black and Indigenous people than Portland — and we need to come together with solidarity and support. 


    There are a lot of resources out there to learn and contribute to. I want to point you to the Chi-Nations Youth Council — follow their instagram to WITNESS what is happening in Chicago; if you’re in Chicago, show up to their rallies if you’re able, and if not, contribute by sharing their info and donating to their paypal. 


    And to our Black/Indigenous fatmily members in Chicago and elsewhere, stay safe. We love you.

    Call to action: DONATE to the Black Trans Lives Matter Youth Fund, and if you can’t donate, please read about their mission and share them. The fund is organized by the Black Excellence Collective.


    The Black Trans Lives Matter Youth Fund is a direct response to how COVID-19 and police violence, among other things, have disproportionately impacted the Black trans and queer communities. They’ve already raised $100,000, and give a detailed breakdown of where that money will go — but we want to mobilize our fatmily to keep bringing that number up to their $250,000 goal. Donate. Send us your receipt. We’ll be keeping track on our insta of how much the fatmily has raised. Hopefully that can inspire the community to donate more and more! As the Black Excellence Collective says, “Now is our moment to change the world!”

    Centering Black Women featuring Sophie Williams

    Centering Black Women featuring Sophie Williams

    In this episode, we’re talking with Sophie Williams, AKA OfficialMillennialBlack on Insta, about her upcoming book, not centering whiteness, and the love triangle between fatphobia, racism, and misogyny.


    Call to Action: Read “What, to Black Lives, is the 4th of July?” by Antwan Herron. Read, reflect, and share this piece over this weekend — the 4th. Remember that when we call July 4th “Independence Day,” who that Independence included. 


    “This Fourth of July is yours, not mine. You may rejoice, I must mourn. To drag a man in fetters into the grand illuminated temple of liberty, and call upon him to join you in joyous anthems [is] inhuman mockery and sacrilegious irony.” - Frederick Douglass

Thanks for helping keep my mind on track...

One of the good reminders out there for how to love yourself right! As a fat person, I struggle constantly to try to think of myself in a body positive way. Most of the time lately, I at least kind of win the fight, with some lovely encouragement from people and podcasts like this one! Thank you for making me feel seen and spreading awareness. ❤️😁

I miss April! But she killllin

I miss April but Soph is killin it! This is the first ever Patreon I’ve ever supported as well. I believe so much in their message. They have taught me so much about intersectionality and I feel heard. I’m a cis, straight (ish) small fat woman.
