With its hilarious and insightful blend of essays, quizzes, facts, and reporting, FAT!SO? proves that you can be out-and-out fabulous at any size.
It Gets Fatter Buttons ($20)
A set of three buttons from the It Gets Fatter project, a body positivity project started by fat queer people of colour, for fat people of colour.
God Loves Hair - Vivek Shraya - Signed Copy ($40)
God Loves Hair is Vivek Shraya‘s first book, a collection of 21 short stories following a tender, intellectual, and curious child as he navigates complex realms of sexuality, gender, racial politics, religion, and belonging.
Told with the poignant insight and honesty that only the voice of a young mind can convey, the stories are accompanied by the award-winning illustrations of Toronto artist Juliana Neufeld.
God Loves Hair was selected as a finalist in the 2011 Lambda Literary Awards.
There’s also femme positive, body positive porn, two vibrators and lots of other goodies!
