Kelly Lenza identifies as fat to thin people, and with fat people identifies as superfat. She states that she is “on the verge of infinifat - a term created by Ash, the host of the Fat Lip Podcast. Kelly introduces Jana to these new terms that describe the experience of fatness in conjunction with inaccessibility. Kelly is also a parent and you can hear her kiddo in the background of this episode. It's pretty adorable. Jana and Kelly jump into the convo discussing how it can be hard to listen to podcasts that are so directly linked to our personal experiences in the same way that watching fat storylines on tv will often get criticized by fat folks because the characters’ entire storylines are dictated by their fatness. Kelly shouts out Nailed It for this reason: it doesn’t discuss fatness or calories, it’s a fun show for all ages that centers a big-bodied host with a great sense of humor.
Kelly is a photographer and wants to do more shoots of fat folks having a good time and living their best lives. Hit her up if you’re a fat babe who wants to do celebratory portraits. She sees selfies and professional photos as a tool of body liberation. Hire her! Book her!
