Are you ready for the Bay Area’s biggest fat fashion extravaganza of the year? Are you prepared to spend the afternoon in the company of some of the most gorgeously courageous, enthusiastic fat folks around, egging each other on to buy that tight leather vest or try on that bikini? Are you ready to sample delicious homemade treats? Are you ready to come in with a reasonable amount of cash, and leave with armloads of new-to-you clothes you can’t wait to wear?

So are we, because the countdown starts now!

Back for the 5th year! The fat-friendly, gender-inclusive clothing and bake sale returns in August. Presented jointly by Big Moves, friends of NOLOSE, and the Fat Friendly Funders, we’re so proud that this bonanza of fat fashion and fellowship is becoming a Bay Area institution.

Now’s the time to clean out your closets for great fat causes! We’re currently accepting donations of gently used clothing for people of all genders, size large and up, up, up! Superfat and masculine-spectrum clothing especially appreciated, but we’ll take it all (shoes and accessories, too). Send an email to schedule a pickup.

We also need bakers and volunteers the day of the sale. Interested? Send us an email at

Accessibility Information: The entrance to the sale is on 28th Street, through the garden. There is a small parking lot on the side of the garden towards Telegraph Avenue, and we ask that people leave the parking spaces in the lot for people who need closer, more accessible parking. Once in the garden, there is a path down to a ramp on the left; the ramp is the main entrance to the sale and will be festooned accordingly. Inside, we’ll have some armless seats and volunteers on hand to help you shop, carry clothes, etc!

The Humanist Hall has two gender-free bathrooms, one of which is accessible but may have a sink-height issue. The shared dressing room is also gender-free.

A note about the clothing: we put the call out for donations of clean clothes but don’t wash them ourselves, so some may arrive with pet hair, scented detergents, or smoke.
