The Burger Queen Contest and interview with Amy Lamé

Today I the absolute thrill and pleasure of interviewing the fierce and fabulous Amy Lamé and found out all about the ground breaking, naughty but nice Burger Queen competition
Copyright 2012 Sami Knight
she is the head judge and plus princess in residence for. I am a long long time admirer of Amy. She is a true plus icon and fativist with a fantastic sense of humour. In speaking with her warmth and genuine empathy with us other chubbies shines through.

Now in its second year this totally unique beauty pagent is challenging weight biased stereotypes with a healthy humour dose and shows that we plus size people are creative, intelligent, articulate and can laugh at how society treats us. In speaking with Amy this show and her other work with is her fativism. Challenging peoples misconceptions in a fun way and not throwing numbers and statistics. The aim is to fill the capital with a mega load of chubby love.
This brainchild of the amazing performance artiste, director and genius who has been tipped by i-D magazine as one of five things to see in 2012. Scottee is something you must not miss. Each of the full figured, gorgeous and smart contestants will participate in 3 thrilling rounds of challenges. These are Trend (flaunting your fat fashion), Taste (your signature dish served to our judges) and Talent (light entertainment for heavyweights). Guest judges include the gorgeous Alison Hammond, Immodesty Blaize, and many others. The competition has 4 fiercely contested heats, then the grand final all taking place at The Royal Vauxhall Tavern. Amy said that the Taste round more often than not is the decider. These evening events are not just about the competition. Scottee over the course of the competition will be delving into the world of fad diets, celebrity endorsed fitness dvd's and other dark and nefarious things and will be sharing his wit and wisdom and also poking fun at fat stereotypes
The evenings also include guest performances from chubby chasers Myra Dubois, Timberlina, and Russella & Tenor Ladies. Djing is the wonderful Sami Knight playing big (gastric) band tunes, the laugh inducing 'What's Jude eating this week?' is back, the weekly Pie Chart Rundown and of course the show's not over till the divine Miss Annabel Sings. This event is not to be missed so go buy your advance tickets here and have a utterly flabulous Thursday night out for £7 or £11.99 and include a burger meal.
