We're here. We're queer. We're fat.

This one-of-a-kind collection of prose and poetry radically explores the intersection of fat and queer identities, showcasing new, emerging and established queer and trans writers from around the world.

Celebrating fat and queer bodies and lives, this book challenges negative and damaging representations of queer and fat bodies and offers readers ways to reclaim their bodies, providing stories of support, inspiration and empowerment.

In writing that is intimate, luminous and emotionally raw, this anthology is a testament to the diversity and power of fat queer voices and experiences, and they deserve to be heard.

'A beautifully written collection of stories, poems, pieces that does so much more than just celebrate different bodies, this book poetically and stoically lays claim to the space that we've been told to avoid at all costs. This book is an exploration of the freedoms and reclaimed joys that feel as if they were stolen from us. Important stuff!'
Juno Roche


'Fat and Queer introduces a new generation of writers creating intersectional fat culture. It is a fine feast of life stories and poems exploring fat, sexuality, race and gender. As someone who has spent their life nurturing a movement of fat queers and trans people, I can't express how satisfying it is to see the work grow and bloom.'
Dr Charlotte Cooper, Psychotherapist, Author Fat Activism: A Radical Social Movement, Fat & Proud: The Politics of Size and Obesity Timebomb


'Reading "Fat and Queer" was a breath of fresh air for me. So many stories truly touched my heart and made me reflect on my own experiences. These stories were written with so much honesty and depth, the whole book was a joy to read.'
Essie Dennis


'Fat & Queer presents readers with a vibrant collection of diverse, often-silenced voices that speak to the extraordinary resilience and tenacity that allows these writers to thrive in a world that rarely celebrates or affirms their identities. A necessary addition to an ever-expanding literature of the body and the new queer canon.'
Amy Long, author of Codependence and winner of the 2018 CSU Poetry Center Essay Collection Competition

Deliveries in the UK seem to be pretty much back to normal since the 20th May 2021. We only send things first class and 99% are arriving in 1 - 2 working days.

International orders are still taking longer, due to different country lockdowns, the increase in online shopping and the reduction of flights carrying cargo and deliveries around the world. You should expect international orders to take longer than normal, although many are arriving on time. Some international orders take 2 weeks, some take 2 months. That's just the way of the world at the moment.

We use Royal Mail for deliveries with a tracking barcode. Once an item is with Royal Mail, we're not able to track it until it's been delivered/signed for.
