Radiance: The Magazine for Large Women, was created
in 1984 and was published quarterly for 16 years. Its purpose was to support women “all sizes of large”
in living proud, full, active lives, at whatever weight, with self-love and self-respect.
In those 16 years, Radiance grew to become one of
the most trusted and valued resources in the worldwide size acceptance movement.
As of December 2000, we put the printing of
Radiance on hold. We have developed a very full and inspiring web
site with highlights from our many years in print. I invite you to take a look around our site and take advantage
of all the information, interviews, features, artwork, book reviews, personal essays, poetry, resources, and support
that is available to you.
