What role does a community play in making a safe space for all bodies? How do Eurocentric beauty standards affect us individually and collectively? Lisa sits down with Bryson Alejandro and Rachel Ostler, who share their own journeys of body love as people of color and as advocates for better media representation. Dr. Gigi Awad shares some of the psychology behind body image, the impact of idealized images on our brains, and how we can be a little more aware of stigmas that we may not even know we have, so that we can make our environment--onscreen and off--better for everyone.
