2017 and the rest of this decade so far, in general, are truly some groundbreaking times. Even though it seems like we’ve been regressing at times (thanks, Duterte, Trump) we’re poised to do more in breaking ancient, outdated molds and norms and moving forward with the right things.
For women, one of the most important movements right now is the drive for body positivity, or accepting one’s body no matter what. It can be a little difficult to get into considering all the norms society and the media have barraged us with our whole lives, and you might need to talk and listen to a few people to get you inspired and help you feel comfortable with it. That’s why our friends from Preen made their second-ever Preen Sessions event all about body positivity, inviting some of their friends to come and talk all about accepting that a healthy body is the best body.
Award-winning Bliss lead actress Iza Calzado, host and actress Iya Villania-Arellano, radio DJ Riki Flores, fitness guru Lexi Gancayco, digital strategist and Scout contributor Coco Quizon, as well as PLUMP Magazine’s Danah and Stacy Gutierrez—all self-acceptance advocates—will be joining Preen on Sunday, May 21 at 2 p.m. at the SM Makati ground floor concourse. Each of them were invited for their fresh, honest, and optimistic takes on the topic, and this discussion looks like it’s gonna be as fun as it is eye-opening.
You can definitely follow along on Sunday via the official Facebook live stream on Preen‘s page. For more details and updates, follow @preenonline on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, and Viber.
