Our society talks about fat people, wages war on fat people, and dictates to fat people. Rarely are we talked to, rarer still are we given a place in discussions about us.
The fat rights movement is here, we’ve been here for a while, and we deserve to speak for ourselves, in our own words. That’s what this project is about – creating a space for fat activists to tell our story and create a verbal history accessible for free to anyone who can get on the internet.
I talked about this project today at the Fat Activism Conference and realized that I hadn’t updated this website. I am still collecting videos but I’m not posting more at the moment and the GoFundMe is currently on hold while I revise the project to be both more inclusive and less expensive.

In the meantime you can check out the currently videos here and help me connect with fat activists who have a story to tell. E-mail me their contact information (or have them e-mail me) at ragen at danceswithfat dot org.
