Jennifer Williams interviews soprano and Fat Politics activist Tracy Cox. Hailed by LA Weekly as a “force of nature,” Tracy Cox’s distinguished acclaim includes a Sullivan Foundation Award, the Birgit Nilsson Prize at Operalia and the Kirsten Flagstad Award from the George London Foundation. She has been interviewed by The New York Times on Fat Politics and is an in-demand consultant on diversity in the performing arts for singers, competitions and opera companies alike. We discuss fatphobia’s roots in colonialism and Protestantism, what we teach audiences when performances fail to represent diverse bodies, and why those who benefit from fatphobic systems should also dismantle them.
