Joy Arlene Renee Cox is an ordinary person who has been given an extraordinary opportunity to share stories about people much more fabulous than herself. Her field of work is centered on fatness, identity, and social change.

Joy does believe in speaking up and advocating for what's right. She is the author of Fat Girls in Black Bodies: Creating Communities of Our Own, published through North Atlantic Books, and the host of the pro-fat, pro-Black podcast Fresh Out the Cocoon.

Joy has been featured in articles by the Huffington Post and SELF magazine.

We discuss topics including:

  • Fat acceptance and fat liberation
  • Marginalized populations and the research that was used in Joy’s book
  • Seeking safety
  • Understanding one’s heritage
  • Eat what you can afford
