Ep 58: Queer Body Love with Elizabeth Cooper


“How do we love ourselves, our bodies, and each other in the face of oppression?” – Elizabeth Cooper

In this episode, we talk with Elizabeth Cooper of the annual Queer Body Love Speaker Series. Cooper also coaches people (via Queer Body Love Coaching), leads group courses and workshops, and facilitates retreats so that people can learn to live and embody their own liberation. We ask Elizabeth about living in a communal house. Plus, Melody uses a “less than stellar” pun, according to Raechel.

Key ideas from our conversation:
Body autonomy
Learning through conversation
Fat activism
Body positivity


Check-ins: until 8:30 min mark
E Cooper: 8:30-53 min
