Deviant Bodies: Intersections in Body Policing for Fat Folx and Trans* Folx

A session at Transcending Boundaries Conference 2012

Saturday 27th October, 2012

5:30pm to 6:15pm (EST)

Chasers. Surgery. Invasive questions about our bodies. Never finding clothes that fit. Assumptions, assumptions, assumptions. In this facilitated round-table discussion, we'll explore similarities, differences and intersections between ways that fat bodies and trans* & gender non-conforming bodies are policed in our culture -- and we'll look at how these intersections play out in intimate relationships between individuals who are fat and/or trans*. Dakota is a genderqueer trans* person with thin privilege. Rebecca is an inbetweenie fat person with cis privilege. We'll share thoughts and stories from our own relationship journey together and insights from conversations with other fat and trans* friends. We invite everyone with related experiences to join us for a conversation on working together, staying conscious, and supporting and celebrating each others "deviant" bodies and histories.
