Hi all,

I have been sitting on this project for ages, but my friend recently got her zine printed and it's spurred me into action.

I am calling out for fat vegans! I would love to get some contributions/submissions from folks for this: http://bigfatveganzine.tumblr.com/

If you know anyone that would be interested, please pass the link on :)


And the full info:

Dear Fat Vegans,

We need you! If you would like to contribute any of the following to the first issue of the Big Fat Vegan Zine:

    A written piece.
    Poetry.
    Art.
    Vegan recipes.
    Suggestions for folks to interview.
    Anything else zine-appropriate!

It would be great to include some of the following topics:

    Fat shaming and health trolling within the vegan community.
    Fat vegan experiences, and……
    Fat vegan experiences that intersect with other unique lived experiences of, for example, disabled/trans/of colour folks, etc.
    The struggle around body positivity and the journey to loving our fat bodies.
    Experiences of eating disorders as fat vegans.
    Experiences of dealing with thin privilege and its effects.
    Struggles with health professionals around our fatness/veganism.
    The Health at Every Size movement and how it deals with/incorporates veganism (or not).
    Fat vegan role models.
    Resources for fat vegans: blogs, Etsy shops, Facebook groups, etc.

Please feel free to express yourself honestly and freely, whether you have a positive or negative experience or viewpoint to share. Please feel free to be ANGRY or SAD, or to be joyful and hopeful.

Would you like to contribute something, or get involved? If so, please email me directly on fifteenkeats at gmail dot com!
The initial deadline for submissions is 30 April 2016

Hey folks, just to say I am still looking for contributions for this. The post at the top of the this page gives some info.

I've been a bit out of it the last few weeks and haven't quite kept up my recruitment drive but I would really appreciate if you could share this with anyone who you think might be interested!

Thanks <3

Hey! I'm a fat vegan who used to be a model with an eating disorder as an omni. I don't know what I could contribute but let me know if you think of anything specific!

Yes please Paprika! That would be super. I'm really open about what can be included. My aim is to bring forward some fat vegan voices and hear what they have to say! You could do a written piece, a recipe, some artwork, or any combination of those.

Anything you have to say is valid. Any thoughts you might have on the intersections between being fat and vegan. There are SO few positive fat vegan voices out there I want to challenge that and dig some out :)

You could either PM me or email fifteenkeats at gmail dot com if you want to know anything more :)

This is the call for submissions http://bigfatveganzine.tumblr.com/post/ ... tributions

I absolutely love this idea. I am sick to death of seeing claims on social media about how going vegan will stop you from becoming obese/cure all your ills and make you magically thin. I actually gained all my weight after becoming vegan (not related to the food I was eating so much but I won't go in to that) but just goes to show veganism isn't a magical cure-all which prevents you from becoming fat etc.)

Best of luck with everything, this is going to be rad.

I, too, really love this idea. Be sure to let us know when it's done as I will definitely pick up a copy!

Yay, thank you! I imagine I'll have to extend the deadline while I try and persuade some more folks to contribute but it should be worth the wait :)

The (super duper) Vegan Warrior Princesses Attack podcast kindly gave me a shout-out during their latest episode (which is an excellent interview with Carol J Adams) http://veganwarriorprincessesattack.com ... l-j-adams/

They also featured my 'I Am A Fat Vegan' story cos they are ace (and fended off the trolls afterwards!) http://veganwarriorprincessesattack.com ... fat-vegan/

I am still taking submissions if you want to submit/share :) http://bigfatveganzine.tumblr.com/post/ ... tributions
