Sofie Hagan is a young Danish comedian and author of Happy Fat. We spoke to her on the programme earlier in the year. She’s now touring the UK and has been talking about some of the issues raised in the book as well as tweeting about it. ‘I am not a body positivity campaigner,’ she said, ‘I am a fat liberationist. I care about abolishing the systemic discrimination and abuse that fat people endure on a daily basis.’

What’s your experience of being fat? Do you think your size affects the way people see and treat you?
