Fat activism opportunity

Marilyn Wann, flabulous fab activist extraordinaire, is trying to organize alternatives to the American Society of Bariatric Surgeons' second annual Walk from "Obesity." Info about the walk here: - it happens the morning of September 18.

I can't participate because I'm going to be on vacation.

If anyone here lives near a "walk" and is interested in putting together a local response, Marilyn can make handout materials available and put people in touch with whatever local fat pride community might be nearby. (The rubric of last year's organizing group is Bypass the Bypass Brigade.)

If you are interested, you can get in touch with Marilyn directly or you can comment here (or e-mail me) with your e-mail address and I will pass your comment on to Marilyn.

Unfriendly comments or e-mails will be put in the bit recycle bin.
