Laura made a SHORT FILM about plus size representation here and everyone should watch because it is fascinating and wonderful! She projected images of her body in lingerie on New York City buildings and asking passersby what they think about the projections. It's interesting to hear how open most women are to this conversation. The ladies discuss Laura's other projects which you can check out more of on Laura's website.
Laura talks about exposure therapy and her own fat body and the ways that she gives time and focus to her own insecurities in order to get over them. She discusses her arm insecurity and how she trained herself to wear sleeveless clothing, living in the awkwardness of the feeling. She has done this with many different styles and practices and now she has truly found confidence each day and in many spaces.
Laura's One Cool Thing is making zines! She discusses the catharsis she's experienced writing about and developing her two zines! They have not yet been published but Laura describes the act of making the zines being very important. Jana's One Cool Thing is the instagram account @guerillafeminism. She shouts out the account while hoping that she can talk more about bodies and sex workers and criminalized bodies. The two women get down to asking, "Who is safe?"
