You Are Wanted: MJ @margejacobsen

In this interview MJ and I explore so many topics including body shame, living with mental illness, showing up with compassion and softness for oneself, parenting, polyamory, examining proximity to whiteness and finally, the experience of being found by their biological family.

A workshop about eating, rest and nourishment in a decidedly anti-diet, anti-resolution, allowing for messiness space

Tuesday January 5th, 2021 

LITQB Podcast: This is a podcast about the barriers to embodiment and how our collective body stories can bring us back to ourselves. This is a podcast for people who identify as queer or for people who might think of their relationship between their body and confining social narratives as queer. This can feel like an isolating experience.  Our wounded bodies need spaces to talk about struggles with nourishment/disordered eating, body image issues, dysphoria, racism, heterosexism, transphobia, xenophobia, substance use/abuse, chronic pain/disability, body changes in parenthood, intergenerational trauma, the medical/wellness/therapy industrial complex and its lack of inclusion of queer bodies and much more. Hopefully this podcast can illustrate the connections, and resonant pain points, that we have with one another.  Livinginthisqueerbody.com  @livinginthisqueerbody
