Love Ourselves, Love Our Bodies Just As We Are

BodyImage4Justice is pleased to announce a new campaign to promote discussion of body image and its connection to health and well-being in our community. The Love Ourselves, Love Our Bodies Just As We Are Campaign features our stories in our own words about body image, health, and well-being. This campaign focuses on the experiences of transgender people, but includes stories from people throughout the LGBTQ community because we see body image as a common thread that connects people across identities. We welcome stories and reflections from people of all ages, shapes, sizes, levels of activity and ability/mobility, etc. We believe there is no wrong way to have a body!

We invite you to contribute your own thoughts and experiences regarding body image to be included in the campaign, along with a photograph of yourself and a brief biographical statement. Contributions can be up to 700 words long, and may be edited for length and grammar before publishing. Filmmakers and vloggers are welcome to submit short videos (5 minutes or less) and a brief biographical statement. We especially invite trans women to participate in this campaign.

Please submit your story or video via e-mail at embodyingjustice@gmail.com Also, please help us spread the word about this campaign to others who may be interested in contributing their stories–we want to include as many diverse voices as possible!
