It Gets Fatter is a project started by three self-identified fat people of colour, with the intent of building a dialogue around being fat people of colour in a fatphobic world, eating together and being in safe spaces together.
“… maybe it could be a project, like It Gets Better, but actually better, because people of colour are doing it.”
“I think for me, it’s really important to be around people who look like me and think the same way I do, but also just to feel safe as a fat person, safe being visible, safe eating in public, and not feel pressured to have body shame or like I need to lose weight, or need to talk about losing weight, or feel like I always have to work on what I look like because I’m fat.”
There is a specific call for participation at the end of the video:
“I hope that if people want to upload things, videos or text or whatever themselves, too, that would rule.”
