This new publication gives a name and a collective public voice to the fat people of Ireland. It represents a population that is at once invisible and hypervisible. It is a publication that was created to uplift and unify fat Irish people, but just as importantly, give those who read it new perspectives about fatness. Its contents are not only informed by body politics, but by honesty, radicality and the power of the personal.
The pieces included in this publication are by fat contributors living in and from Ireland. They are about their experiences with anything from body-image, romance, medical procedures, employment, partners, mental health, birth control, nationality, disability, gender, childhood, exercise, food, sex, art, celebrity, philosophy to simple day-to-day living, and how these things intersect with fatness and Irishness.
