Went to the 6th Annual Cupcakes and Muffintops Clothinf Swap in Oakland this weekend. Felt it appropriate to wear my “Fat Babe” tee from pocfatfashion. Paired it with some leopard print shorts with suspenders and white mesh booties. 

I got to meet up with a fellow poc who was so sweet and awesome. Loved seeing lots of people there and it definitely grew from last year.

Let’s be real for a second though… If you wanna keep it ~positive~ or whatever stop reading now… It was also hella white. Like hella hella white. A lot of white folks were trying clothes on outside of the dressing room which is great in some ways because people determined it was a safe space for that for some folks but also… yr white of course you are determining it’s safe for you without thinking about how other folks feel about you doing this. I am not trying to have my path of travel blocked by you either as I try to get to that asos skirt I see at the bottom of the pile at the other end of the table please get out the way.

I was looking through my photos for something to submit to fatpeopleofcolor and came across this. I’m sure that there was a story behind it at the time it was taken, but I honestly can’t recall what it was. (Oh, and I did wind up submitting it, because what the heck. ;) )

I was going through my photos after the call for submissions and came across this one. I can’t recall what originally prompted me to take it, but it seemed too much fun to not share.

DANZA VOLUMINOSA: Cuba’s Sensational Plus-Size Dance Company

image

Danza Voluminosa, a dance group created in 1996 by dancer and choreographer Juan Miguel Mas, features prima ballerina Mailín Daza and seven dancers in total: six beautiful fat women and himself. They have three full-length productions under their belts as well as 30 shorter pieces. A Canadian documentary, “Defying Gravity” (2004) chronicles Juan Miguel Mas’ vision for his troupe and the obstacles they have faced.

According to Mas:

We provide a context for obese people to develop artistically, to create a language and a structure that makes them able to interact with society. But it’s not limited to fat people. We’ve worked with dancers who gained weight, retired dancers – all kinds of artists said to be ‘good for nothing’. We’ve worked with people with AIDS. 

We’ve played in places for the first time where people have shouted at us, ‘look at those fat people!’ We still hear giggles sometimes, but when audiences see the sense of purpose, the work that has gone into the show, our concentration – well, there’s always huge applause at the end.
