If you’re in the NYC area this weekend and you’re looking for clothing, consider attending Big Fat Flea 2012 – an “all-genders fatshion rummage sale for fat folks who like a bargain.” Previously known as Fat Girl Flea, the name has been changed this year to promote (and get) more masculine-spectrum clothing. At the Flea, you’ll find new and vintage clothing in sizes 14 and up for all genders.
This year’s event is being held in a bigger space, and they’ll be bringing in more items, and personal shoppers, which can come in handy for those of you who want style advice or assistance. Tickets are $10 at that door, and that gets you access to a wide variety of clothing, with nothing over $10. If you’re thrifty and you like to create your own unique style, Big Fat Flea is an event you’ll want to attend. All proceeds from the event benefit NOLOSE, a volunteer-run organization dedicated body empowerment.
If you’re in the area and you want to donate clothing, you can do so by dropping it off at the LGBT Center in Manhattan – 208 West 13th Street, NYC on the 3rd floor – Saturday 5/12 between 6-10pm, or Sunday 5/13, between 11-3pm.

Um. So when are y'all gonna launch that chubstr dating site? Hmm? You can't just show us all these men and then whisk them away to handsome land, leaving us to ponder who they are and where they've gone.
