Being an activist means that I make stuff and I do stuff. Often this is about fat, but it's also about zines, the internet, films, academia, sex, all kinds of things. My fat and queer body is central to my cultural production, I cannot deny it even though, like many people, my body is often mediated by a screen, a mouse and a keyboard. My friend Sara Davidmann, who also happens to be an excellent photographer, took some pictures of me in a nest of some of the things I have made. That's me in the picture, pulling things I've made out of my cunt, my body. Here I am: fat, queer, a thinking, critical and productive citizen, "the obese". This is what a fat activist looks like, I'm one of many different kinds of fat activist.
