I was recently skyped into Al Jazeera's The Stream to discuss weight discrimination and fat stigma alongside The Fat Chick, Jeanette DePatie, and Glen Gaesser, author of Big Fat Lies (which I'm currently reading). If you didn't get a chance to watch our discussion live you can watch it online now with this link:
Virgie Tovar, MA is 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 focused on helping people break up with diet culture) and the editor of Hot & Heavy: Fierce Fat Girls on Life, Love and Fashion (Seal Press, 2012). She writes about the intersections of size, identity, sexuality and politics. See more updates on Facebook.
