Hey fellow Bostonian fatshionistas, just a reminder that The Big Thrifty is tomorrow! The Thicky Chicky will have a pop-up shop, and there will be yoga, bellydancing, and burlesque classes, among other awesomeness–see the Facebook page for all the information. Which reminds me that I never got around to posting pictures from the fat-pos day of movement that the Big Thrifty hosted last year, so, here they are! The pictures are from the event’s Facebook page, used with permission.
The day included bellydance, yoga, self-defense, a cupcake break, and a mini-clothing swap. Also, I couldn’t help doing a few cartwheels when I saw the mats. 🙂

I’m so happy that fat community seems to be taking off in Boston. In the last few months alone, we’ve had the Big Thrifty, Three Big Fat Voices, and the Fab Fatty Frolic that I organized. We’re not quite at San Francisco-level awesomeness–I’m constantly hearing about fat dance parties and crafternoons and all sorts of other fun stuff happening there–but we’re getting there.
There are two more awesome fat events coming up this summer:
1.) Another fab fatty frolic that I’m planning, this time at the beach! It will be at Revere Beach on Saturday, August 3rd. You can find more information on the Facebook event.
2.) The Big Thrifty is organizing yet another awesome event, Living X-Large and In Charge: Intro Classes for Yoga, Self-Defense, and Bellydance. It will be on Saturday, July 20th, in Malden, and in addition to the movement classes, there will be a mini clothing swap and a cupcake and fruit break! Check out the Facebook event for more info.
Huzzah for flabulous fattery taking over Boston!
