Friends Courage J. and Taylor Buffin first heard about Thick Thrift on Instagram. “When I heard that it was primarily oriented for plus-sized people I was like, ‘Oh, yeah, that's perfect,’” says Buffin. Photo by Andrea Bautista/KCRW.

Finding second-hand clothing in extra-large sizes can be frustrating. LA’s first all plus-size flea market is here to help. 

The word “queer” insinuated someone’s sexual “deviance” in the 19th century. Now it’s used proudly to refer to the LGBTQ+ community. KCRW traces this evolution. 

This month, environmental educator Jason Wise is leading a free series of hikes that unpack the hidden queerness in LA’s natural landscape.
