Being a fat person is tough work & sometimes we deserve a bit of recognition for living in the world while fat. Girth Guides is a way to connect with other fat activists and seek comfort in community; a club where we can witness and validate our own strength and lived experiences.
Our fat experiences are varied and the way we resist stigma and hate is different! Some people are loud, and some people are quiet. Resistance is hard work.
There’s no test, no bars to jump, no measurements or scales. You decide which patches you identify with, or have earned through your own hard work, and you can display them however you feel comfortable. For some Guides they might like to wear them up front to spark conversation about fat activism, and for other Guides a private collection may suit their own personal activist practice.
There are a limited amount of Patron Of The Fats patches left over from the Pozible campaign, so I’m offering them to people who purchase all 12 patches as well as the Girth Guides Emblem in one order until I have none left. The Patron patch was a reward for the highest tier donation so this is a lovely bonus!
