D’nah Freespirit

I met Judy Freespirit at the Fall Fat Women gather of 1997.  I was so impressed with her spirit, that when I wanted to change my name, I thought of her.  Being a fellow fat-Jewish-lesbian, I thought in embodied all that I wanted to be.  When I had a mutual acquaintance ask her if it would be okay for me to take her name, and she told me, “A Freespirit needs no permission.”  I hope I can live up to even a fraction of her inspiration.
