Moving your body in a way that feels good is a glorious fuck you to anyone who thinks fat people shouldn’t exist. In this workshop, Cameron will talk us through a little history on twerking and why doing it makes her feel her best self, and then get all of us shaking ass for fun (no experience necessary). Every ass is a good ass, so shake what your mama gave ya!

Ko Putauaki tōku maunga.
Ko Whakatāne tōku awa.
Ko Mātaatua tōku waka.
Ko Motiti tōku moutere.
Ko Pupuaruhe tōku marae.
Ko Te Patuwai tōku hapū.
Ko Ngāti Awa ratau ko Ngāpuhi, ko Te Arawa, ko Waitaha ōku iwi.
My name is Cameron McCausland-Taylor. I am a 23 year old, queer Māori-Pākeha/Dutch wahine, curently in my last year of a creative writing degree. I’m also a freelance writer, as well as the Te Ao Māori editor for Massive Magazine.
I have been an active part of the fat, body-positive community online since I was a teen. I truly owe it all the people I’ve connected with in this community who have shared their kaupapa & their knowledge, as they have made me the confident, happily fat wahine I am today.
I’m so excited to facilitate this workshop and shake ass with all you big, beautiful tāngata!
