Strange Fruit

The body positivity movement has been extremely important in combatting our country’s fatphobia and teaching us all to love our bodies just as they are. Kelsey Miller, founder of The Anti-Diet Project, is this week’s guest and joins us to explain “How Whiteness Killed the Body Positive Movement.”

Miller shares her learning journey about white privilege and intersectionality and she says the body positivity movement must heed the work and labor of Black fat positive activists in order to keep the movement growing.

We also chat with Elijah Li, founder of SOULE magazine and the SOULE Foundation about why it’s important for Black LGBTQ+ folks to see reflections of themselves in a world that is both anti-Black and anti-queer.
