      NAAFA Announces Bruce Sturgell as Keynote Speaker for its 2013 Annual Convention & Expo!

      FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
      June 6, 2013

      Foster City, CA – NAAFA, the civil rights organization working for Equality at Every Size, has announced that Bruce Sturgell, Founder and CEO of Chubstr Media, will be a featured keynote speaker at its upcoming 2013 Annual Convention & Expo, being held on July 25-29, 2013 at the Westin Hotel, Casino & Spa, located at 160 East Flamingo Road, Las Vegas, NV 89109. The name of Sturgell's keynote is "The Journey to Find my Own Style."

      Bruce Sturgell is the Founder and CEO of Chubstr, a style blog for big men. Chubstr.com helps men of size find, create, and share their style with the world by offering them articles, resources, and reader photo submissions. Sturgell has been featured in the New York Times, New York Magazine, The L.A. Times, MSN.com, and MOO.com for the unique and interesting content he's created through Chubstr.

      "We're thrilled that someone of Bruce's caliber and expertise has agreed to join NAAFA in Las Vegas to share his vision," said Jason Docherty, NAAFA Board Chair. "He has positioned Chubstr as a leading voice in the plus size fashion world, especially for big men. He has demonstrated that with the right brand and marketing messaging, it is indeed possible for people of size to be reflected in positive images in today's media."

      "Promoting Equality: All Sizes Welcome!" is the preeminent event for size diversity advocates from across North America, including Canada and worldwide. NAAFA has a tradition of using educational convention sessions as a platform for innovation in the areas of diversity, size acceptance activism and nondiscrimination practices and policies.
