Dear White Women

Nov 30, 2021

Our next guest is not only the author of a book we both can’t wait to read - Decolonizing Wellness - but also talks specifically to those individuals who are at the intersection of BIPOC and LGBTQ identities. When you think about bodies, beauty, and self-care, that’s often a group that gets lost, not only in popular consciousness but also in media portrayals of what is considered desirable or attractive. And, when you’re struggling to be seen, or fit in, or even survive - this can be devastating.

This was yet again one of those conversations that we didn’t want to end, and each of us walked away with different ways to think about not only our own bodies, but what we put in them, how we interact with those around us with regard to wellness - especially kids, and ways in which we can better support and understand the struggle of marginalized individuals when it comes to preconceived notions of health and beauty.

What to listen for:

  • How cisgender, heteronomative, Eurocentric standards of beauty that we see in mass media add to the body image concerns of queer people
  • Additional challenges to body positivity when it comes to people who are both BIPOC and LGBTQ+
  • Knowing and listening to our own bodies better, including what we put into them
  • Kids, nutrition, and diet culture
