Event Description

Self love is hard. Self love is especially hard when you’re navigating the merciless aggression of capitalism, the exhausting trauma racialized and gendered oppression, the harm and violence we may have experienced in our pasts (or are still experiencing), a social justice community that sometimes demands perfection over the space to err and grow, and world that persists on uglifying our bodies or our determination to stand up for ourselves as activists. Sometimes, we just need reminders of what self love feels like, how we got there, how we can protect it, and how we can support ourselves to achieve it. Join us for an amazing panel of storytellers who will share their love stories of falling deeply, passionately, and intensely in love with themselves and set up some time to reclaim your own UGLY: Uplift Glorify Love Yourself and create a world where others can as well. Stay for an optional friendship speed dating event, where you’ll get to exchange your own stories with people who care enough to be present and listen. Maybe you’ll find your next best friend in the revolution.

ASL interpretation and automated live captioning will be provided for the storytelling panel!
