New Posting Schedule for the “Love Ourselves, Love Our Bodies” Campaign

Starting this week, the “Love Ourselves, Love Our Bodies Just As We Are” campaign is moving to a weekly posting schedule, which will continue through the end of 2013. New campaign posts will be published on Wednesdays on the BodyImage4Justice Web site and on the organization’s Facebook page.

We are still seeking new contributions of writing and video for this campaign, especially from youth and elders in the trans and LGBTQ community. We particularly want to include the voices of trans women in this campaign. For more information about how to submit a story or video to the campaign, please visit the “Love Ourselves, Love Our Bodies Just As We Are” Campaign page.

BI4J Presents: Love Ourselves, Love Our Bodies Just As We Are

BodyImage4Justice is pleased to announce a new campaign to promote positive body image and self-esteem in our community. The Love Ourselves, Love Our Bodies Just As We Are Campaign features our stories in our own words about body image. This campaign focuses on the experiences of transgender people, but we will also include stories from LGBTQ allies because we see body image as a common thread that connects people throughout our community.

If you would like to contribute a story to the campaign about your experience regarding body image, please e-mail it to us at embodyingjustice@gmail.com. We accept video submissions for this campaign as well, and also invite contributors to add a photo of themselves and a brief biographical statement to accompany their story. We will post new campaign stories on the Love Ourselves, Love Our Bodies page on this site in the coming weeks.
