Are you interested in improving your body image and changing how you think about health? Are you wanting to challenge and unlearn any implicit bias you have to help make our world a more equitable place? Are you also hoping to learn more about body liberation and fat positivity?
I’ve learned that doing this is an ongoing practice. One of the ways we can do this is by learning from and listening to the voices and experiences of people with marginalized identities.
I’m happy to share with you the books I’ve been learning from as part of a series I’m calling book roundup. The authors of the books I’m sharing will be individuals with marginalized identities- Fat, Black, Indigenous, People of Color, LGBTQIA and Disabled People. The movements of Health at Every Size® and Body Liberation were originally created by and for people with marginalized identities. As these movements gain momentum and recognition, it’s important that their voices are centered and deferred to.
