Hi there! I’m Tiana Dodson.
Some of my identitites are: Fat. Queer. Parent. Biracial Black and Guamanian/Chamorro Person of Color. Chronically ill. Acutely aware. Book lover. Music fanatic. Compulsive dancer.
Part of my work is to guide people feminine-of-center toward reconnecting with their bodies through pragmatic self-care practices so they can come to see that there is nothing wrong with living in a larger body.
Other parts of my work include being unapologetically fat, living my best fat life in Germany, and uncovering systems of oppression in the most important game of hide-and-seek in my lifetime.
Other Places I’ve Been Featured
I’ve had the fortune and pleasure to be interviewed on several podcasts and online summits. If you want to hear more about me and my approach to body liberation and the destigmatization of fatness these are a great way to start.

My Official Bio
With a decade as a body liberation facilitator and a lifetime of lived experience as a fat, biracial, queer, neurodivergent person, Tiana Dodson is well-versed in what it is to exist in a multiply-marginalized body.
As an active co-creator of the syllabus for liberation, her work addresses how personal, community, and global liberation depend upon each other. Through her consulting services, group offerings, and public speaking, Tiana highlights the ways these systems of oppression are bound together and how we can push back against them.
She currently lives in southern Germany.
