Your Fat Friend Screening

And Virtual Q&A with Aubrey Gordon and Director Jeanie Finlay

May 29, 2024 • 7:00 pm ET

Watch the trailer. 

Filmed over six years, Your Fat Friend charts the rise of writer and activist Aubrey Gordon from anonymous blogger known as “Your Fat Friend” to New York Times bestselling author and co-host of the hit podcast “Maintenance Phase.” 

Gordon describes what it’s like to be that fat person on the plane, how the $26 billion diet and wellness industry peddles fantasies on par with the lies that Big Tobacco told in the 1950s, and how the biggest threat to fat people’s health might just be the bias that so many healthcare providers hold for fat people.  

After a decade spent campaigning for LGBTQIA rights, she knows that change is possible. Now it’s time to advocate for herself and create a paradigm shift in the way we see fat people and the fat on our bodies. Your Fat Friend is a film about fatness, family, the complexities of making change, and the deep, messy feelings we hold about our bodies. 

Experience a screening of the film (96 minutes) followed by a live Q&A with Gordon and Finlay, who will join virtually, and moderated by Emily P. Goodstein, the founder and CEO of Greater Good Strategy and founding board chair of Fat Torah (25 minutes).
