We're so excited to have Sonalee Rashatwar with us here in Minneapolis for this workshop! Unlearning Fatphobia with Sonalee with focus on deconstructing diet culture, understanding racism, and body image.

>> This event is sold out! <<
(Our shop will remain open during this event but we are only buying NOON - 4PM.)

Space Information:
This event will actually take place two doors down from our shop. The doorway is rather narrow (35 inches) with a very small lip that may cause problems for those in wheelchairs.
(Please note that the only restroom available for this event is inside of Cake.) We will have a mixture of seating options including many high capacity folding chairs. Please get in touch in advance with any accessibility considerations.

Don't know Sonalee yet?! Check out this info:
Sonalee Rashatwar (she/they), MSW, LCSW, MEd is an award-winning social worker based in Philly. She is a fat queer nonbinary bemme therapist, specialized in treating sexual trauma, body image issues, racial or immigrant identity issues, and South Asian family systems, while offering fat positive sexual healthcare. Popularly known as The Fat Sex Therapist on Instagram, their fame hit an all time high when they were featured on Breitbart in March 2018 for naming thinness as a white supremacist beauty ideal. Sonalee is a sought-after speaker who travels internationally to curate custom visual workshops that whisper to our changemaking spirit and nourish our vision for a more just future. Sonalee is not paid for her labor as a community organizer, where she has fundraised and facilitated a free 5-day political action summer camp for LGBT+ South Asian and Indo Caribbean youth called East Coast Solidarity Summer. They co-own a private practice in West Philadelphia called Radical Therapy Center.

We love Sonalee on Instagram!
