Meet Rubi.

Nestled in the heart of AMC's Dietland, Rubi is the lovable, fiery, resident fat activist in Verena Baptist's collective, Calliope House. Once like Plum herself, Rubi found Verena years ago--and never looked back. Her activism is pure grassroots, working to take down the diet industry one amphetamine at a time. 

Pure joy and unbridled mischief, Rubi also expresses her fat activism by being as visible as possible. With a beehive top knot, bright colors and baubles, and beautiful prints (hand-tailored herself), Rubi finds joy inhabiting her body--and in encouraging Plum to do the same.
