Muchacha "Body Positivity"
Muchacha is a quarterly fanzine that seeks to promote the “F” word feminism, encourage involvement in DIY music/art communities & inspire participation in grassroots activism.
Muchacha Issue #9
This 40 page edition aims to challenge the mainstream white/heterosexual/able-bodied/cisgender-centric feminist movement of “body positivity.” The intention of this issue is to reclaim the term “body positivity” in a way that is inclusive of diverse voices and encourages reflectivity on how bodies can also be cause for pain, conflict, and/or healing.
Topics include body positivity visual art, a letter to a hipster guy who would never date a vegan, a brown body at a punk show, gentrification, song lyrics, empowering poetry, body diversity in videos and tv shows, if barbie were real, body positivity from a queer, fat, trans*, chronically ill perspective, self-love collages, a roller derby story, and more!
