Mid Drift: Exposing The Soft Underbelly of Motherhood
Mid Drift is a feature length documentary film about postpartum experience around the world. America’s obsession with “body after baby” is harmful and we want to shift the conversation to center on the incredible experiences and community surrounding motherhood. Angie, co-founder of The Mid Drift Movement and producer of this film, will also play a major role in this film as a “character” struggling with postpartum issues of her own.
We want to disrupt the fashion magazine industry by spotlighting the hidden fashionista in all of us. We believe we can knock down traditional barriers by creating a multimedia digital magazine containing beautiful body-positive photography with women of all sizes–breaking free from the beauty standards upheld by the mainstream fashion industry magazines. Most importantly, we hope to empower women by encouraging them to love themselves–recognizing both their inner and outer beauty. Our goal is to make LoveUMagazine the home for women who demand style regardless of size.
The Body Positive Coloring Book Project
Abundant Bodies: Fat Lovin’ Media Features 2016
The Abundant Bodies track gathers, shares and celebrates the wisdom and abundance of our bodies. Abundant / thick / fat bodies are the target of so much hate, policing and negativity, even in our organizing communities. How do we unlearn mainstream ideas of what a body should look like and (re)-learn to celebrate the diversity, resilience, wisdom and beauty of all bodies? How can we work together to deconstruct fat stigma and other forms of marginalization while building a stronger inclusive fat community? How can we challenge ourselves to decenter whiteness, capitalism, ableism, cissexism, heterosexism and classism while we explore what it means to be fat?
