Curvy Girls Rock Co-hosts Activate Your Sexy BoPo Event In D.C. 4.21.18

On Saturday, April 21, 2018, at Dance Loft 14, the creators of Curvy Girls Rock Digital Series and FATGIRLSDANCE™ bring a body positive, pulse-pounding event to Washington, D.C. Bring your moves to "Activate your Sexy" a dance class facilitated by FATGIRLSDANCE™ creator Cathleen Meredith. Then cool off with wine and healthy snacks as Curvy Girls Rock Creator Shakesha Williams and our professional BOPO Panel discusses bodies, relationships, situationships, and best practices for incredible sex. Don't miss this groundbreaking event before the District of Curves ultimate finale!

“Inclusivity and visibility of plus size/fat bodies in media, fashion, film, and TV is a vital and ongoing conversation”, says Meredith of the collaboration. “Shakesha and myself are creating content and media to further that conversation. Sex, sexuality, and body acceptance is the next logical step in the uphill battle against a mainstream narrative which purports that  67% of the American population should not be seen. Meredith goes on to say “This event is a radical act of fearlessness in response to that narrative: We are here. We have sex. We fall in love. We are desirable and shame will no longer be apart of that equation.”

“It’s an honor and a privilege to collaborate with Cathleen and Mickey (Armstrong, Founder of District of Curves)”, says Williams. “Working with District of Curves and FATGIRLSDANCE™  is empowering not only to me, but to thousands of women in the D.C., Maryland, and Virginia area. I look forward to the finale weekend and enjoying our friends in the D.M.V.
