BodyImage4Justice held its inaugural event, the LGBTQ Health and Wellness Weekend, on August 24-25, 2013 at the Brewery complex in Jamaica Plain, MA. The weekend included gym tours at Mike’s Gym JP, yoga and body sculpting workshops, discussion sessions on various aspects of LGBTQ health and wellness, massage therapy, youth programming, and a community raffle to raise money to fund low-income LGBTQ gym memberships. 69 people officially registered for this free community event, and the raffle raised $541, including a generous donation from Fenway Health.
Many thanks to all of our wonderful presenters, partners, sponsors, raffle donors, volunteers, staff, and friends who all came together to create and support this event! We hope to make this an annual event that will continue to expand and evolve to address the needs of the local LGBTQ community.
