Here you’ll find resources from some of the people who have been influential in my exploration of self-empowerment, social justice, body liberation and beyond…
Sofie Hagen is a stand-up comedian, author of the book Happy Fat (which I highly recommend you read!), podcaster behind the podcasts Made of Human, Secret Dinosaur Cult and Comedians Telling Stuff, a fat activist and a blogger. https://www.sofiehagen.com/
Chidera Eggerue aka The Slumflower is an author, blogger, influencer and visual artist. Her book, What a Time to Be Alone, is a must-read. http://www.theslumflower.com/#theslumflower
Dr Charlotte Cooper is a psychotherapist, author, interdisciplinary artist, fat activist, researcher and speaker. You can find her incredible book Fat Activism here: http://hammeronpress.net/
Virgie Tovar is an author, activist and a leading expert and lecturer on fat discrimination and body image. Her book, You Have the Right to Remain Fat, is an excellent starting point for learning more about Body Liberation and Fat Activism. https://www.virgietovar.com/
Sophie Christophy is a self-directed scholar, investigating the relationships between and impact of the history of childhood, education and parenthood, and our current social norms, systems and behaviour. https://sophiechristophy.wordpress.com/
Amélie Roch is a full-time fatty and part time artist, who wants to challenge the archetype we often see on stage. Through rituals, confessionals, magic and spectacles Amélie’s work tackles systems of oppression, the importance of identity and anything else that she can't afford to go over with her therapist. I’d highly recommend you check her work out here: https://www.amelieroch.co.uk/
