Body Language at the Wellcome Collection

body-language-mainI wrote a piece for The Guardian about fat and language in aid of Body Language, which is taking place at The Wellcome Collection, and at which I am presenting and dancing.

The rhetoric around obesity is toxic. So I created a new language for fat people

Some of the things mentioned in the article, some things not mentioned which relate to the event:

My book, Fat Activism: A Radical Social Movement
My zine, Fat Activist Vernacular.
Another zine, The Blob, created specially for the Wellcome Collection event, which you can download for free.
Beats for the dance I am performing, But Is It Healthy?
A blog post about the whole thing, How to Killjoy an Obesity display one #BodySpectacular at a time.
