Fabulous fat activist and fashion genius Jill Andrew is organizing the second annual Body Confidence Canada Awards. I'm delighted they used the furry Yay! Scale® in the event logo!
Do you know people who are "actively fighting against stereotypes, judgments, policies, and discrimination that attempt to label marginalized bodies (i.e. fat, racialized, dis/abled etc.) as unhealthy, uninspired, or underachieving"? Nominate them! (Deadline's tomorrow!)
The awards ceremony happens Sept. 9, which is also International Day of Beauty (created by the International Committee of Aesthetics and Cosmetology adopted by the World Congress in 1995).
