|Title||Fat/Trans: Queering the Activist Body|
This article argues for a new approach to the intersection of fat/trans identities that moves beyond “additive” accounts or those that simply highlight parallel struggles. The analysis addresses the divergent accounts of the “malleability” of the body in fat and trans political discourses and how these might shape the lived experience of the fat/trans individual. However, rather than thinking of trans and fat as distinct phenomena, the article asks what it would mean to recognize their inextricability and suggests that this could be a productive way of imagining a queer fat politics that seeks not to reproduce exclusionary norms.
