Stacy Bias is the co-owner of the wind-powered web host Taproot Green Web Hosting in Portland, Oregon and the founder of DykeTees.com, which specializes in smartly designed LGBT t-shirts. This entrepreneur and activist was also the brains behind TechnoDyke.com, which she founded in 2000 and was one of the most popular lesbian websites, with over 50,000 visitors a month, until it closed in 2008. Bias helped create a number of size-positive activities in Portland like the ChunkyDunk swim parties and FatGirl Frock Swaps, and was the founder of the FatGirl Speaks conference. “It is my hope that I can help eradicate a little bit of shame from the lives of women by demystifying marketing tactics, encouraging compassion of self and others, facilitating heartfelt dialogue and sharing my own process of fighting through all the compare and contrast to simply love myself as I am,” she says. -CB
