Quimby’s Welcomes The Barf Zine Tour Brings a One-Woman Play and To-The-Point Readings on Food, Bodies and Eating Disorders 4/22

barfzineThe Barf Zine is making its way across the Midwest bringing you rarely discussed blunt analysis, and personal anecdotes about body image, food, eating disorders, and radical identities!
For far too long activists, communists, anarchists, feminists, and queers have turned a blind eye to issues of body dysphoria, fatphobia, and eating disorders. Our insistence that these problems exist only in the normative culture silences the very real comrades, friends, lovers in our community who struggle daily.
Come listen to personal narratives from people in these diverse communities that are tired of being quiet. We are speaking out, and we want you to listen!
As an extra special treat, the Barf Zine Tour is pleased to welcome zine contributor Gus Allis and her short, one woman play entitled “I Thought Fat Girls Were Supposed to be Funny?” along for the ride. Through an intense, darkly funny, brutal monologue, Allis addresses the audience and forces them to examine the effects of fatphobia on one woman’s life.
