Representation is important. Growing up it was so rare to see or read a character that I looked like and admired. So if you’re in the mood to see some more representation on your TV tonight, this list is for you.
Dumplin’ – This movie is on Netflix and centers around a plus-sized girl who joins a beauty pageant. The book is equally as great.
Sierra Burgess is a Loser – Another Netflix movie, I struggle with this movie because it perpetuates a ton of toxic stereotypes, but overall it ends well and deals with some hard realities of being plus-sized in high school.
SNL – Aidy Bryant has brought plus size to the comedy scene in some amazing ways. If you want a laugh and want to feel represented it can feel amazing to watch one of these sketches.
Booksmart – Leave this article and watch this now. NOW.
Parks and Rec – Streaming on Netflix, Parks and Rec holds a special place in my heart for many reasons. One of the biggest of those reasons is the amazing Donna Meagle. She is the embodiment of loving oneself and such an amazingly refreshing plus-size character in an equally amazing show.
