In Brisbane right now there are so many opportunities when it comes to being fat. There is such a dearth of fat positivity that the things that a group of fat people could do together is almost endless. So it’s important that Project BrisFats has some sort of focus.
To me, Project BrisFats is about:
- Providing a safe space for fat people and their allies
- Providing resources to the community and a place for fats to swap and share their stories, resources and information
- Working to remove the stigma associated with being fat
In my head are some very short term goals for Project BrisFats, but I also have some medium to long term goals. These need to be solidified into something on paper and planned out, but that will take time. In the short term, it’s important that we just get together and start the ball rolling.
