DMV Fat-Friendly Community -- Clothing Swap & Tea

The fun image that was used for the Facebook event.

Sadly, we missed the DMV Fat-Friendly Community’s latest clothing swap today, at a Community member's parent's home (thanks!  I was at the Philly Trans Health Conference with TransFaith, and Julia was busy too).  Especially sad as it did what it said on its tin (ha!) in that it included a lot of good tea and related snacks.  But we hear great things from those who were there.

And if more fat-friendly community in the DMV (DC / MD / VA) would make you happier too, dear reader, please be in touch.

We have more plans being planned, and are open to questions, suggestions and more -- but it's also more than okay if you need to just "lurk" and/or be online-only.  My Julia founded the DMV FFC a few years ago, and we have more than 100 members in the Facebook Group now! Including a good amount who actively participate online and off -- and/but, the more the merrier.
