Event: Size Acceptance Swim, Huntington Beach CA

Monthly size-acceptance swims at the Huntington Beach City Gym & Pool.

Usually on the second or third Saturday evening of each month from 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM. The recommended donation is $10 per person but please donate what you can. No one is turned away for lack of funds. Everyone is welcome!

We rent out the pool just for our group, so it is very private. Whether you’re size 4, 14, or 4X, all are welcome to enjoy the warm waters for our bob & chat (otherwise known as “The Swim”).

  • Men’s and Women’s changing rooms and showers.
  • Handicap accessible.
  • Plenty of free street parking.
  • Lifeguard on duty.

Event: Chunky Dunk, Portland OR

ChunkyDunks are an annual summer series of body-positive group swims.

Organizers rent public pools and offer up a focused and intentional space where the natural diversity of human bodies is respected. We know it can be daunting to put on a suit and swim in public. We’re not going to let anything stop us, or you, from enjoying a refreshing summer cool-down! Chunky Dunks are a safer, fun environment to test the waters of your own empowerment and swim, lounge, splash! HOT SUN. COOL WATER. NO SHAME.

The ChunkyDunks are currently held only in Portland, Oregon – but we are seeking organizers to start events in other cities, states and countries!
