Our new campaign More will be launching later this summer, More is a new body positivity campaign that focuses on addressing issues of fatphobia, femmephobia, racism, ageism, and ableism in LGBTQ communities. The media often overrepresents thin, masculine, white, young, and able bodied people, which creates unrealistic body norms. More will feature posters and buttons, a workshop brought to you by CCGSD’s Team Education, and a zine written by LGBTQ people across Canada.
We’re accepting submissions for the More Me zine right now. We’re looking for your art, poetry, stories, or photography about experiences with body acceptance, positivity, and feelings about diversity and inclusion in your own LGBTQ community.
Please keep submissions to under 500 words and be mindful of the diverse audiences who will be reading More Me. More Me will only be available in black and white please keep this in mind when submitting artwork.
The zine, along with the rest of More will be launched August 14th at our What I Love About Being Queer and Trans poetry night during Pride week.
Email your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 8th.
