In 2011 author, activist and performance poet Sonya Renee Taylor posted a photo of her 105kg big brown queer body in a corset because she believed that no human being should be ashamed of being in a human body. This small unapologetic act was the catalyst for what has become a global company and movement that reaches millions, exploring the intersections of radical self-love and social justice.  Sonya discusses her new book and shares some of her extraordinary life and work with us and with poet, performer and guest programmer Tusiata Avia.
