April Hélène-Horton


April Hélène-Horton is a writer, public speaker, actor and model; you might know her as The Bodzilla.

April is all about fat joy – a passionate advocate for intersectional experiences, she’s a noted MC and keynote speaker who gives people the confidence to take up the space they deserve. Her sense of fun translates through to her fashion where she is a literal rainbow of fabulous fashion.

In 2021, she led the way as Australia’s first truly plus size models to appear in a bikini on a billboard and was part of a national three-part TV series asking what Australia really thinks about three important issues.

She champions racial equity, LGBTQ inclusion, sex positivity and fat liberation.

In 2023, her mission is to continue bringing conversations about authentic diversity, inclusion and privilege to everyday life.
