Looking to Mariko and Jillian Tamaki’s graphic novel Skim, and the digital It Gets Fatter (IGF) project, this article locates fatness and eating as transgressive forms of disabled embodiment. Although fat representation in Skim occurs subtly in the narrative’s images rather than explicitly in the accompanying words, visual fatness—the crux of IGF—can be read as the driving force behind this work. In regarding food consumption not as a site of shame but as a means of fat queer and trans people of color (QTPOC) survival, this analysis locates visual representation toward rethinking links between queer fat embodiment, racialization, and disability movements.
