"Fatness & Fandom" Panel at GeekGirlCon 2014

The geek community can be a hostile and exclusionary space for people of size. How can we create change in a community that claims to be welcoming of outsiders but participates in the same oppressive behaviors that we see in mainstream society? In this panel, we will discuss what it means to be a fat person in fandom by exploring fat representation in media, cosplaying while fat, and the lack of plus sizes in geeky apparel. We will also talk about strategies to combat fat oppression and steps we can take to make our community more inclusive.

Panelists: Rachelle Abellar, Kim Correa, Uhura Jones, Amber Dawn Bushnell, Shawna Jaquez, Sabrina Taylor
