These images were captured before March 2020, and were not taken during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Body Home Fat Dance, created by artist and performer KT Kusmaul, creates performance and offers dance classes centering our fat community. Their goal is to inspire joyful movement, connection with their bodies, and creative expression, while honoring their unique abilities and challenges with self-compassion.
They’re co-creating a resilient community, building an empowering and nuanced dialogue about fat liberation, and connecting with their own embodied selves. Dance classes and embodiment classes are offered in Portland, OR. They also have a performance troupe exploring meaningful movement in fat bodies.

Hi! I’m Lindley
I’m a professional photographer (she/her, pronounced LIN-lee) who celebrates the unique beauty of bodies that fall outside conventional “beauty” standards. I live outside Seattle, WA.
People come to me for:
- Body-safe portrait, boudoir and small business photography sessions
- Diverse stock photos
- Fat fine art photographs
- Health at Every Size (HAES)-aligned consulting, writing and editing
- The Body Love Box, my monthly body-positive subscription box
I talk about and photograph fat folks because representation of large bodies in the world is vital to our body liberation. Join me for weekly thoughts on body acceptance plus quick and useful resources for your own journey.
