Episode 35: Fat Positives – Favorable Representations of Fat People in Entertainment

Fat Positives – Favorable Representations of Fat People in Entertainment

I’ve done a lot of talking on The Fat Lip about negative portrayals of fat people and about entertainment that just doesn’t get it right when it comes to fatness. But there are also many cases of positive representation of fat people in media today–probably more than ever in history! In today’s episode I’m focusing on the fat positives, and I hope that we can create an ongoing discussion of entertainment that treats fat characters and fat actors respectfully. If you have seen good fat representation, I want to hear about it! Use the Tell Your Story link to get in touch!
