Queer Tales Book Club: The Body is Not an Apology

January 30 @ 4:00 pm

Join us online for Queer Tales Book Club where we chat about books that are by LGBTQ+ authors or about LGBTQ+ characters and themes. Reading is not required, and everyone is welcome.

We hang out on the last Sunday of the month at 4pm.

January’s pick is The Body is Not an Apology by Sonya Renee Taylor.

The body is not an apology : the power of radical self-love

Taylor, Sonya Renee

Summary: Humans are a varied and divergent bunch with all manner of beliefs, morals, and bodies. Systems of oppression thrive off our inability to make peace with difference and injure the relationship we have with our own bodies. The Body Is Not an Apology offers radical self-love as the balm to heal the wounds inflicted by these violent systems. World-renowned activist and poet Sonya Renee Taylor invites us to reconnect with the radical origins of our minds and bodies and celebrate our collective, enduring strength. As we awaken to our own indoctrinated body shame, we feel inspired to awaken others and to interrupt the systems that perpetuate body shame and oppression against all bodies. When we act from this truth on a global scale, we usher in the transformative opportunity of radical self-love, which is the opportunity for a more just, equitable, and compassionate world--for us all.
