We’re here. We’re queer. We’re fat. This one-of-a-kind collection of prose and poetry radically explores the intersection of fat and queer identities, showcasing new, emerging and established queer and trans writers from around the world. Celebrating fat and queer bodies and lives, this book challenges negative and damaging representations of queer and fat bodies and offers readers ways to reclaim their bodies, providing stories of support, inspiration and empowerment. In writing that is intimate, luminous and emotionally raw, this anthology is a testament to the diversity and power of fat queer voices and experiences, and they deserve to be heard. Includes work by Eddy Francisco Alvarez Jr., M.P. Armstrong, Jay Audrey, C. Adán Cabrera, Provvidenza Catalano, Fletcher Cullinane, Nore E. Derrington, Ruth Gibbs, Roy G. Guzmán, Leah Harris, Jonathan Hillman, Benny Kay Hope, D. Nolan Jefferson, Caleb Luna, Carmen Maria Machado, Edward Kelsey Moore, Ninamarie Ochoa, Nicole Oquendo, Emilia Phillips, Samantha Puc, Alyssa Roth, Alix Sanchez, Haley Sherif, L.J. Sitler, K.M.
