Hey Cal Q&A’ers,
Hope you had a good weekend, and that midterms aren’t stressing you out too much! This week, we will be talking about Body Image and Positivity. Any standard of how bodies ought to look will inevitably leave some behind, since we are doomed (or perhaps blessed?) to a world filled with bodies of all shapes, of all sizes, and of all colors. So how can we make our spaces safe and supportive for bodies of all types? How, in the face of forces that collude to make us feel less than, can we remain proud of our bodies, proud of the many struggles and triumphs that our bodies bespeak? If these issues seem interesting and compelling to you, come join us at Cal Q&A this Wednesday!
What: Body Image and Positivity
Where: 30 Wheeler
When: October 22, 2014
Time: 7:30 p.m.- 9:00 p.m.
You’re invited to participate in a survey for a PhD student’s research. It focuses on the experiences of people who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Queer, or Transgender and/or identify as a sexual minority. The survey is online and should take 20-30 minutes. People tend to find this research interesting, as it is relevant to personal identities and social change. Participation is voluntary, confidential, and participants can stop participating at any time without penalty. Survey link is here.https://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/1787845/groups
