Sonya Renee Taylor's The Body Is Not An Apology is an online community promoting "body empowerment" and helping folks destroy feelings of shame. According to them, "discrimination, social inequality, and injustice are manifestations of our inability to make peace with the body, our own and others." The website strives to address social ills that a diverse range of people encounter, with articles such as "7 Microaggressions Trans People Face in Health and Mental Healthcare Settings" and "White Orientated: Privilege in a Queer, Fat, Black Body." Taylor will be joined by the unbelievably prolific Seattle Civic Poet Anastasia Reneé.
