She’s All Fat: A Fat Positive Podcast, Food Heaven Podcast, and Living in this Queer Body.

Tools for contributing when you have more time or resources

SUPPORT body positive organizations like Body Confidence Canada

Options for ongoing and sustainable engagement.

ENGAGE in a conversation. Is there something your own body image has held you back from trying? Tag us on socials with #rocbodypositivity
