It’s not everyday we get to see and listen to someone explore her personal concepts of body acceptance on national TV. Beyond excited to see Season 2 of TLC’s My Big Fat Fabulous Life premier Wednesday September 9th at 9 pm.
My hometown hero, Whitney Way Thore will be making us laugh with her goofiness and cry through her vulnerability. My hope: America will watch without assumptions and keep their weight stigma in check. I am excited to see how Whitney, as a large person, experiences life dancing amongst social injustices and diet culture.
In watching, maybe we all will have permission to sit with our vulnerabilities that speak to our body shame. Check it out!
Be sure to check out Whitney’s #NoBodyShame campaign on Twitter and it’s website.
Edited Sunday September 6: Fat shaming is indeed a THING and watching this video makes me even more excited to watch My Big Fat Fabulous Life! Size acceptance promotes health and hope. Check out Whitney’s message here:
