Thirty-one-year-old plus-size blogger Stephanie Yeboah has experienced racism and fatphobia throughout her life. Her first book, Fattily Ever After, is the story of her journey towards self-acceptance. Join us – and probably a fair few of Stephanie’s 180,000 Instagram followers – to listen to Stephanie explain the history of the black ‘body positivity’ movement, and share her experiences of fetishisation, online dating, fast fashion and loneliness. Stephanie tells it like it is. This ThinkIn is must-attend for anybody who has struggled to find self-worth (or even just fashionable clothes that fit and feel good) in a world full of discrimination and judgement.

About Stephanie

Stephanie Yeboah has been a part of the fat acceptance/body positive community since 2014. Since then, she has written many pieces on her blog, on social media platforms and in external publications on topics such as intersectionality in the body positivity movement, standards of beauty within the movement and self-love. She’s spoken at the Women of the World Festival, Oxford University, Africa Utopia, the Youth Select Committee, the London College of Fashion diversity panel and many others.

How does a digital ThinkIn work?

A digital ThinkIn is like a video conference, hosted by a Tortoise editor, that takes place at the advertised time of the event. Digital ThinkIns are new to Tortoise. Now that our newsroom has closed due to the coronavirus outbreak, we feel it’s more important than ever that we ‘get together’ to talk about the world and what’s going on.

The link to join the conversation will be emailed to you after you have registered for your ticket to attend. When you click the link, you enter the digital ThinkIn and can join a live conversation from wherever you are in the world.

Doors open at 6:25pm for a welcome and briefing. Come early to get settled, meet the team and chat to other members. ThinkIn starts at 6:30pm.

Members can enter their unique members’ access code to book tickets. Find yours in My Tortoise > My Membership in the Tortoise app.

If you have any questions or get stuck, please read our FAQs, or get in touch with us at memberhelp@tortoisemedia.com

What is a Tortoise ThinkIn?

A ThinkIn is not another panel discussion. It is a forum for civilised disagreement. It is a place where everyone has a seat at the (virtual) table. It’s where we get to hear what you think, drawn from your experience, energy and expertise. It is the heart of what we do at Tortoise.
