About the Conference

This is a virtual conference (so you can listen to the talks live by phone and/or computer, as well as being provided recordings and transcripts so that you can listen/read at your convenience) for people of all sizes who are interested in creating a world that respects the diversity of body sizes, and who are interested in fighting the bullying, stigmatizing, shaming, and oppression faced by fat people, and want to do that work intersectionally.

Whether you are looking for help in your personal life with family, friends, healthcare providers etc. or you’re interested in being more public with your activism with blogging, petitions, protest, projects, online activism, or something else, this conference will give you tools and perspectives to support you and your work, and to help you make that work intentionally intersectional and inclusive so that nobody gets left behind.

You’ll be able to access the workshops on the phone or on the computer from the comfort of your own home or anywhere that you are.  If you can’t listen “live” during the conference dates, register anyway and you can access the talks via downloadable recordings and, with a Platinum Pass, a thumbdrive with all the talks will be mailed to you.

Registration options include a Gold Pass, a Platinum Pass, and a pay-what-you-can-afford option so that you can get information and support that works for your budget.
