The Bindery hosts Virgie Tovar for the launch of her first book, You Have the Right to Remain Fat. Growing up as a fat girl, Virgie Tovar believed that her body was something to be fixed. But after two decades of dieting and constant guilt, she was over it--and gave herself the freedom to trust her own body again. Ever since, she's been helping others to do the same.
Beloved local activist Virgie Tovar, who started Babecamp and the hashtag campaign #LoseHateNotWeight and is one of the nation’s leading voices on fat discrimination and body image, launches her new book, “You Have the Right to Remain Fat,” with a reading and conversation. Tovar is the managing director of Radar Productions and editor of “Hot & Heavy: Fierce Fat Girls on Life, Love and Fashion.”
