Summary, etc.:
In this insightful short documentary, body acceptance activists Keena and Jessica speak candidly about growing up overweight, and the size discrimination they have faced. "While I have all the confidence in the world, Ím told every day that my body is revolting." Jessica turns heads in the street́for both her striking fashion, and larger than average body. Keena is the heaviest she has ever beeńand the happiest. Brought together by social media, these women use the blogosphere strategically to make their bodies visible in a world that still thinks that fat women should hide away, and work to celebrate body diversity and the right to be happy whatever your body size. Their stories detail the intricacies of identity and the intersection of race and gender with fatnesś and how social media has helped this community enact visibility on their own terms.
