In today’s video interview, I’m pleased to introduce you to Virgie Tovar!
Virgie Tovar, MA is an author, activist and one of the nation’s leading experts and lecturers on fat discrimination and body image. She is the editor of Hot & Heavy: Fierce Fat Girls on Life, Love and Fashion (Seal Press, November 2012) and the mind behind #LoseHateNotWeight. She holds a Master’s degree in Human Sexuality with a focus on the intersections of body size, race and gender.
Virgie is a huge inspiration to me with her activism (not to mention her amazing fashion sense), and her book is a for real game changer.
In this interview, I talked with Virgie about eradicating diet culture, the joy of moving your body, her Babecamp 2015, and much more. Check it out:
