This new app (launching Beta soon!) wants to answer the important question: "Can we all go there?" It's like Yelp, but for fats to help inform other fats about the size accessibility of a business location, be it a performance venue, restaurant, or city park.
From their website: "We've heard people say the bigger they get, the smaller their world becomes. AllGo's mission is to keep the world from shrinking for people of size. Our platform gets people the information we want to go out more, without discomfort. We design with size in mind because we believe that all bodies are magnificent and deserve to be comfortable."
From their website: "As a non-profit organization with an international membership committed to the practice of the Health At Every Size® (HAES®) Principles, ASDAH envisions a world that celebrates bodies of all shapes and sizes, in which body weight is no longer a source of discrimination and where oppressed communities have equal access to the resources and practices that support health and well being."
Curves in Bloom is an inclusive, one day celebration of all bodies through music, art, dance, self care workshops, panel discussions, and fashion.

The best high-resolution, royalty-free stock image collection focusing on inclusion and diversity!
From their website: "Traditional stock photography sites offer images that almost always feature young, thin, white, able-bodied people. Does that really reflect the dizzyingly diverse array of people we see around us every day -- or your customers? More people are demanding better from the companies they interact with. Use this opportunity to stand out in any market and reach entirely new demographics by representing the real bodies and lives of your customers."
