[Image Description:

The front cover is purple, black, and white. Across the top reads “FaTGiRL” with “#4” in white against a multi-pointed explosion image in black, and “$5” in the upper right corner. In smaller print reads, “A Zine for Fat Dykes and the Women Who Want Them.” 

In the center is a black and white photo of a light-skinned nude fat person lying on their stomach propping their upper torso up just enough that you can begin to see their cleavage. Their short hair is neatly combed to the side. Their slightly squinted eyes smile directly at you, as a person off camera presses cake into the pictured person’s mouth using an index and middle finger. Frosting smears the lips, right cheek, and hand of the photographed person, and you can see their naked and clean (for now) shoulders and legs extending behind them.

The bulleted list across the photo reads:

  • Big Butch Babes
  • What’s Sexy About Fat
  • Barbarism in the Cemetery
  • Interview with Jewelle Gomez

Across the bottom of the page, with each word at a 45 degree angle reads: Stories, Recipes, Letters, Pranks, Resources. On the bottom left, there is a neon yellow $5 price tag. On the bottom right is the logo, a black circle with the words FaT GiRL amidst stars, and a light skinned fat babe raising a fist in a bra with the letters “F” and “G” on the breasts.]
