Yesterday, body positivity queen Lizzo shared an unedited naked selfie in an effort to change the conversation around body positivity. Appearing with no clothes on, Lizzo holds a coffee cup in her hand as she celebrates “Taurus Season” writing, “To celebrate I wanna give y’all this unedited selfie.. now normally I would fix my belly and smooth my skin but baby I wanted show u how I do it au natural.”
Lizzo also said that she’s sharing the picture to celebrate her partnership with Dove and the Dove Self Esteem Project to help “change the conversation about beauty standards.”
Recently, Lizzo has been posting videos on TikTok speaking up about body shaming, fatphobia, and the importance of recentering and uplifting the bigger body types the Body Positivity Movement was made for.
I’ve always looked up to Lizzo and I’m really looking forward to the work she does with Dove!
Have you ever experienced body-shaming? How do you think the conversation around body positivity should change?
