Body Like Mine: On Being Queer Poly and Fat
5" x 7", 28 pgs, two-color risograph
"You are never just fat and ok in America. Everything Reminds you every day about what's wrong with you." Part fable, part memoir, part collage "Body Like Mine" recounts the memory of someone who finds love even when society seems to deem him unworthy of such. Through various threesomes and polyamorous liaisons, the author learns to stop focusing so much on his flaws, to confront his own self-hatred regarding his shape, and to accept the love of the (many) ones who shower him with love. An honest and delicate portrayal of a struggle shared by many. - M.C.
