Our goal is to create a safer space so everybody can feel confident, embrace and celebrate their bodies.

"I celebrate myself, and sing myself,
And what I assume you shall assume,
For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you."
-Walt Whitman

Loving yourself can sometimes feel like a battle in this world. The story written by society does not always encourage queer, many-sized bodies of color and those who may have disabilities to love themselves and the power that they hold. ✨💪🔮💎
In response, we are coming together to create a photo series that celebrates and centers our bodies in their real, radical beauty and power! We will create scenes that center our bodies in the way that we crave, to tell the stories of our own bodies and create spaces where you can stretch your comfort zone and love your body no matter what size or shape. Because every body is beautiful!

Everyone should bring 2-3 outfits (if you can) accessories, props if desired, a signed release form, and a photo ID (for release forms- we respect your name & pronouns). All collaborators must complete a release form.

Seeking: models, make-up artists, hair stylists, photographers, wardrobe stylists and queer/trans clothing brands. We are especially seeking brands that center underrepresented parts of the LGBTQIA+ community!

Please share on social media and join us, so we can make this magic happen!
