The 2012 Official BBWFanFest, a unique event and the first of its kind, was conceived and developed meticulously for nearly a year after having other shows refuse booth space to plus-sized models for not being “height and weight proportionate” and ostracized for showing off their curves. The convention was a weekend-long celebration of plus-size adult industry performers, also known as BBW performers. The organizers are already making preliminary plans for BBWFanFest 2013 as well as strategizing plans to bring the event to the East Coast later this year.
