That was the spoken word poem that launched The Body is Not an Apology (TBINAA), a global movement committed to radical self-love and body empowerment. TBINAA sprang from a viral selfie share and has grown from a Facebook Page into a coalition of over 33,000 people in 42 countries who share a commitment to living unapologetically and celebrating their ages, racial identities, sizes, abilities, gender identities, sexual orientations, and every other aspect of their humanity.
The next exciting phase of TBINAA is launching a new website featuring an online magazine, social community, courses, and webinars to support people around the world reclaiming radical self-love for their bodies and their lives. Learn more in the video below and support the new site here!
