Love Your Body Week - 2017

Each year, members of the Office of LGBTQ Services team sit on the Love Your Body Week Planning Committee. The week will be filled with interesting and relevant speakers and robust discussion opportunities about body image and body talk. Visit the Love Your Body Week Facebook page for the most up-to-date information on this year's events!

For 2017, the Office of LGBTQ Services will be hosting a "Trans Salon" on Tuesday, February 21 from 5pm-6:30pm in Allison Community Room. We invited participants for a discussion on the experience of queer and trans people and relationships with their bodies. We will think about who the body positive movement speaks to, and who has been left behind. In addiiton, we will look at how queer and trans bodies have been cast as outsiders within mainstream media and body positive representation. 

We are providing the following materials to get us started and we ask that individuals read through them prior to the Tuesday night event.
