Beginnings

BIG GIRL ROCK! Navigating a Fat Life is a new zine series about a topic closer to me than skin: existing, living, and resisting as a fat woman of colour. This first issue, BEGINNINGS, is a comic essay on the trials and tribulations of growing up fat and how a fatphobic environment warped my ideas of food, eating, self-image and belonging, but also influenced the beginnings of a writer’s consciousness, gender exploration, and feminist empowerment.

BEGINNINGS was written, drawn and produced for and during the Cup Doodle Project, a 9-week comic workshop and residency program for Asian cartoonists supported by the Ontario Arts Council.
