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?

Back for the 8th year! The fat-friendly, gender-inclusive clothing and bake sale returns in August. Presented jointly by Big Moves and the Fat Friendly Funders, we’re so proud that this bonanza of fat fashion and fellowship is becoming a Bay Area institution.
