Virgie Tovar 

When: Wed., Feb. 13, 7:30 p.m. 2013
Price: free

"It's easy to be a lot of things," Virgie Tovar proclaims in her introduction to the sublime anthology Hot & Heavy: Fierce Fat Girls on Life, Love & Fashion, "but it's not easy to be a fabulous fat girl." Tovar, a fat activist and sex educator, delights in her body, as-is, and wants every plus-sized woman to share in the joys of wearing too-tight clothes that look hot, devouring tiramisu and chocolate cake in the face of public gawking, and remember that no one is ever -- as one of the writers makes very clear -- too fat to fuck. Join Tovar and a handful of Hot & Heavy writers, including Jessica Judd, Deah Schwartz, Abby Weintraub, Tigress Osborn, and Genne Murphy at Pegasus Downtown (2349 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley) on Wednesday, Feb. 13. 7:30 p.m., free. 510-649-1320 or
