Amy Pence-brown has been moderating a popular Facebook group called Boise Rad Fat Collective for years. Now she's being radical IRL.

Sometimes leaving the house in your bathing suit feels like running the gauntlet, but in Amy's case it's really like that. Because she's standing in a farmer's market, not a pool. In front of her is this sign:

<3
<3

So, what happened when she made herself vulnerable to her fellow townspeople? Nice stuff! Which is very surprising, because lots of people are NOT nice and if you've ever fallen asleep first at a slumber party, you'd probably be trepidatious about allowing anyone to anonymously draw on you. But Amy was soon covered in hearts and kind words, and getting hugs from total randos.
