Moe: Do you consider yourself a fat advocate?
Cher Rue: I consider myself someone who believes in helping others, seeing others happy, and helping them with their confidence. I am a promoter of size acceptance but I am also a promoter of treating everyone the same, no one is better than anyone else and no one should be judged. I want everyone to be healthy and happy no matter what size they are. I see the person inside not what they look like.
Moe: You belong to a lot of BBW events is there one you're especially proud of or you would consider your favourite project?
Cher Rue: I love all the projects I am involved with and always have new things in the works, but if I have to pick a favourite it would be Club Bounce, for I get to see people coming out of their shells, smiling, making friends and feeling good in a non-judgemental environment.
Moe: Why is it important for BBWs to get out and be seen?
Cher Rue: It is important for BBWs as a whole to get out and be seen, to show the world our size is not who we are. God made animals of all sizes. I look at it like this: there are rabbits, and horses and elephants and all different sizes of animals, and people are different too and they should be accepted for themselves.
Moe: What would you like to see happen for BBWs over the next ten years?
Cher Rue: I would like to see, as soon as possible, for the mainstream to accept BBWs as equals in all areas: modeling, acting and all professional capacities we choose.
Moe: Do you have any new projects that you're working on?
Cher Rue: We are working on a new television project that we are very excited about. We are also planning a lot of new ideas for Club Bounce.
