    • Arts

Virgie Tovar is an author, activist, and one of the nation's leading experts and lecturers on fat discrimination and body image. She is the founder of Babecamp, a 4-week online course designed to help women who are ready to break up with diet culture. She started the hashtag campaign #LoseHateNotWeight and in 2018 gave a TedX talk on the origins of the campaign. She is a contributor for Forbes and pens a weekly column called Take the Cake on Ravishly.com. Tovar edited the anthology Hot & Heavy: Fierce Fat Girls on Life, Love and Fashion (Seal Press, November 2012) and The Feminist Press published her manifesto, You Have the Right to Remain Fat (August 2018). Her new book, FLAWLESS: Radical Body Positivity for Girls of Color, comes out in March 2020 from New Harbinger. 

In this episode, Virgie and Lindsay talk about how to get comfortable being visible and taking up space, why creative work is deeply spiritual, and how to "punch up" your work.
