We are looking for individuals to participate in email interviews examining the current attitudes towards fat and at changing those attitudes. All walks of life are welcome \226 gender or gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, race, ethnicity, political leanings, and social status do not matter. We are looking for individuals who somehow participate in the Fatosphere \226 bloggers, commenters and readers \226 and that consider themselves part of the Fat Acceptance Movement.
These interviews will take place through email in April and May of 2009. The interviews will involve a series of questions that you may answer by email in your own time as long as the interview is completed by May 15th, 2009. You may refuse to answer any question or end the interview at any time.
For the sake of anonymity, we encourage you to create a new email address strictly for the purpose of this interview. Free email accounts are available through Yahoo (www.yahoo.com), hotmail (www.hotmail.com), or Google mail (www.gmail.com). In any published material, you will be quoted using the pseudonym of your choice. Please contact us from the email address you choose to use at email@example.com if you are interested. Please note where you viewed this posting.
This is a fat friendly research project.
