Vancouver, BC

Fat Girls Hiking has its very first international chapter in Vancouver, BC!  It is so exciting to have Diandra on board to lead you in hikes & other fat positive community.  Diandra can be reached at!  Check out hikes lead by Diandra under Events.  And ‘Follow’ Fat Girls Hiking on Event Brite to receive an email any time we post a new hike.


I am a writer and activist from the ancestral territories of Kitselas and Kitsumkalum First Nations in Northwest, British Columbia. Even though I grew up on mountains and in 102 copyrivers, I currently live in Vancouver, B.C., where I author my blog, Sink Ships ( and am a parent, partner and PhD student studying youth unemployment in B.C. I am also a co-founder of Vancouver’s first fat softball team, The Heavy Hitters, and a member of the Curvy Kili Crew — a group of awesome fat babes who are hiking Mount Kilimanjaro for International Women’s Day 2019.

I was so honored to become a Fat Girls Hiking ambassador. Vancouver has an intense and alienating outdoors culture that pretends it has no room for bodies of all sizes. All of us hiking together will actively make space for all bodies to be on Vancouver’s trails and I can’t wait to go outside with you!
