Season 4, Episode 6: Trans Fat: Lessons from Large Trans & Nonbinary Folks [redux]
We take a large bite out of fat trans folk’s experiences and unearth some incredible lessons about desire, wellness, design, language, love, and so much more.
In December 2022, the Midwest Institute for Sexuality and Gender Diversity hosted the 6th annual Transgender Justice Teach-In and invited TK Morton, Dr. Jonathan Higgins, and Shane Smoore to participate in a discussion about the intersections of being fat, trans, and nonbinary. This episode is the recording from that live webinar.

About the podcast
Take the Last Bite is a podcast by the Midwest Institute for Sexuality and Gender Diversity. It's a direct counter to the Midwest Nice mentality— highlighting advocacy and activism by queer/trans communities in the Midwest region. Through each episode, we're aiming to unearth the often disregarded and unacknowledged contributions of queer and trans folks to social change through interviews, casual conversations and reflections on Midwest queer time, space, and place.
