New episode: Sexy is Sizeless
Body Positivity has been a buzzword for a couple of years now, and it’s starting to gain some speed. But what does it actually mean? Are we truly being body inclusive and celebrating diverse shapes and sizes, or is “Body Positivity” a glittery version of something else? This month we speak to Ashlie Atkinson and Lisa Tinglum! They share their stories and thoughts on body positivity, the Fat Acceptance movement, life as a plus-sized woman, and sex! Listen here now.
This episode was produced and edited by Jeenie Yoon.
