FOM

Friend of Marilyn (FOM)

Friend of Marilyn is a fat positive radio show on Manawatu People’s Radio in New Zealand. It provides counter-programming to the normative discourses on fatness in our culture, hosting conversations in which accepted ideas and stereotypes about fatness are challenged and individuals who glorify obesity are celebrated. FOM believes that safe spaces for fat people are important, and the show is committed to providing a forum where fat people get to speak for themselves (not just have their lives thinsplained by others). FOM is for the fattest of us; none of us are free until we are all free! Follow FOM on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and Spotify.
