Creator Month: Artist and Author Miles Lyons

β€œI won’t date anyone who doesn’t love my body as-is, and I don’t want to be friends with people who think being fat is bad. I draw a pretty hard line on that and the people I hang out with understand that’s a requirement of being in my life.” Β» Miles Lyons

Today’s interview is with @sparklebutch, whose zine is available in the Body Love Shop!

Here’s how they describe themselves:

A big, fat dynamo from Virginia, Miles (aka sparklebutch) has been making queer zines since 2011. They cover a variety of subjects such as fatphobia, pizza, jerks, Jurassic Park, crystal woo stereotypes, teeth, and more!
