This 60-minute workshop is for LGBTQ+ people who want to learn about food and body liberation from a Body Trust® perspective.

Our pre-pandemic world was already steeped in diet culture, fatphobia, and healthism, but now many of us are struggling more than ever to find peace within food and our bodies. From the opportunistic wellness industrial complex to casual fatphobia on social media to misinformed medical information, our environment is promoting a toxic relationship to food, body, and exercise. As queer and trans people, dynamics are also set against the backdrop of homophobia, transphobia, and ciscentric gatekeeping. How can queer and trans folks learn to better listen to and trust our bodies? How can we move away from rule-based eating and disordered eating behaviors toward a greater sense of embodiment, peace, and liberation?
