I look too feminine to be a lesbian
Am I too fat for drag? Inviting you to challenge accepted beauty standards and the concept of 'the perfect body', Essie takes everything they have learned on their journey to self-acceptance and body satisfaction to help guide you towards loving your queer body. From gender, sexuality and reclaiming your body, through to food, politics, social media and fatphobia, this radical book starts a conversation about body image and mental health that queer people are so often left out of. Fiercely and unapologetically written, and with honest advice and powerful stories from a diverse range of queer people throughout, this is an inspiring and necessary book that will show you that you are enough.
Essie Dennis is a queer activist and writer. As a plus-size model they promote body positivity through their popular social media channels and have written widely on queer mental health and body image. This is their first book.
