Help Fund Love U Magazine & Support Body-Positive Fashion! project video thumbnail

Love U Magazine 

We want to disrupt the fashion magazine industry by spotlighting the hidden fashionista in all of us. We believe we can knock down traditional barriers by creating a multimedia digital magazine containing beautiful body-positive photography with women of all sizes–breaking free from the beauty standards upheld by the mainstream fashion industry magazines. Most importantly, we hope to empower women by encouraging them to love themselves–recognizing both their inner and outer beauty. Our goal is to make LoveUMagazine the home for women who demand style regardless of size.

Calling All Abundant, Fat, Plus Sized, Succulent, and Thick Peoples From All Over!
This year at the Allied Media Conference 2016 (June 16-19 in Detroit,
 MI) we are coming back together to continue our conversations, share 
skills, experiences, stories, media, knowledge and strategies to build a
 more beautiful, body accepting and abundant loving future!
The Abundant Bodies Track challenges the ongoing ways mainstream media shames and harms abundant bodies, name fat phobia in our organizing and activism, and create media and practical strategies for resistance, healing and community building. We will broaden the conversation around fat activism by centering this track on the voices of indigenous, Black, people of color, dis/abled, super-sized, trans and queer fat folks. Abundant/thick/fat bodies are the target of so much hate, policing and negativity, even in our organizing communities. 
How can we work together to deconstruct fat stigma and other forms of
 marginalization while building a stronger and more inclusive fat 
community? How can we challenge ourselves to decenter whiteness, 
capitalism, ableism, cissexism, heterosexism and classism while we 
explore what it means to be fat?
We will explore these questions and create spaces to challenge the 
ongoing ways mainstream media shames and harms abundant bodies. Our goal
 is to create media and practical strategies for resistance, healing and
 community building.
We are looking for a variety of session proposals that may include, but are not limited to, the following:
Fat community 101
How to love your body
Ally building for thin folks and privileged fat folks
Body autonomy and social media
Anti-racist fat activism
Skillshares and tools for surviving and thriving
Bodies, health and movement
Breaking down connections between health and weight
Body movement / dance / practice for all bodies
Fat sexuality
Super-sized community members
Fatness at its intersections
Fatness and femme identity
Fatness and masculinity
Sci-fi bodies as fat, queer and people of color
Dis/ability and fatness
History of indigenous / people of color / Black / trans / dis/ability / supersize fat activism
Tools for young fat folks
Breaking down discussions about obesity through race, class, gender and other identities
Proposals are due March 11th, 2016 at midnight. Submit YOURS by filling out the form linked here.
If you have any questions regarding your proposal or this track, 
please contact us via on the Abundant Bodies Discussion Page on AMP Talk
 or at abundantbodies@gmail.com.
**Abundant Bodies and the Allied Media Conference is committed to 
creating a space that allows for access to all community members 
regardless of economics. We will be fundraising in the near future to 
make sure we can support all of the session coordinators who need it in 
order to give as many voices in fat community the platform they deserve.
PLEASE SHARE!

Only 1 more week to submit your proposal!!!

Abundant Bodies: Fat Lovin’ Media Features 2016

The Abundant Bodies track gathers, shares and celebrates the wisdom and abundance of our bodies. Abundant / thick / fat bodies are the target of so much hate, policing and negativity, even in our organizing communities. How do we unlearn mainstream ideas of what a body should look like and (re)-learn to celebrate the diversity, resilience, wisdom and beauty of all bodies? How can we work together to deconstruct fat stigma and other forms of marginalization while building a stronger inclusive fat community? How can we challenge ourselves to decenter whiteness, capitalism, ableism, cissexism, heterosexism and classism while we explore what it means to be fat?
