Vinny Welsby (they/them) is a world-leading expert on dismantling fatphobia and diet-culture, TEDx speaker, and best-selling author. They went from being homeless, abused with self-esteem that was achingly low into the courageous fat activist and change maker they are today. Vinny helps people fall in love with themselves and is dedicated to shifting the way society views fat bodies. We talk about what fat liberation/acceptance really are, the origin of the body positivity movement, and the different levels of fatphobia.
**disclaimer: there is mention of domestic abuse in this episode, so if that is triggering to you, avoid or skip through Vinny’s story at the last 7 minutes of the episode**
