Twisted Monk is Sponsoring Fat Con 2024

December 11, 2023

Twisted Monk is pleased to announce our sponsorship of Fat Con!

Fat Con is on a mission to improve the lives of Fat Humans through art, health, public policy, and community outreach. By improving visibility and uplifting the voices of people of size, we don't seek acceptance, we seek Fat Liberation. January 5-7, 2024 at the Hyatt at Olive 8 in Downtown Seattle. Produced by Puckduction, a fiscally sponsored arts & culture organization.”

Why is bondage rope company sponsoring a con that seemingly has nothing to do with rope or kink? Well a few reasons:

  1. We LOVE Mx. Pucks A’Plenty, the fantastic human producing this event. They’re a badass burlesque performer, intersectionality focused human rights activist, and they’ve written two blog posts for us (“Chronic Pain and BDSM” and “Your Ableism is Showing”). Pucks is a pillar of the Queer, Kinky, and Fat communities, and we’re delighted to be supporting their endeavors
  2. Fat Con’s values, although coming from a different angle, align beautifully with our values. All bodies deserve access to safe, quality stuff. We wish to leave the days people were told they were “too fat to fly” in the past. The connection, joy, and sensation of rope belong to all!
  3. Although not explicitly a kink event, Fat Con will be hosting multiple kink focused workshops, including a rope bondage class that will feature donated Twisted Monk rope! 
Twisted Monk hopes our sponsorship of Fat Con is a valuable contribution towards its goals of “generating Fat joy and informing the Fat experience.” Rope is more than kink. It’s beauty, it’s inspiration, it’s healing, it’s the ecstasy of connection, and all bodies have the right to that full, joyful experience.
