On this episode, we talk to Gloria Lucas of Nalgona Positivity Pride!
Gloria is a Xicana womxn and the person behind Nalgona Positivity Pride. Straight from the Inland Empire, the DIY punk community in Riverside taught her to organize and activate. Since the age of 18 she has helped form Ladyfest IE, IE Riot Grrrls, and Women of Color for Decolonization. In 2014, she founded Nalgona Positivity Pride, after years of dealing with the violent lack of women of color representation in the eating disorder awareness community. Like the chingona womxn of color that came before, she creates spaces for marginalized folks to support each other and heal from the trauma of colonialism, eurocentric beauty ideals and disordered eating in communities of color.
Gloria’s work has been featured at the Huffington Post, MiTú , Bitch Magazine, and The Body is not an Apology. Her most recent project is Sage & Spoon, an online support group for indigenous people and people of color with eating problems. She lives in Los Angeles with her partner and their cats, Pepita and Mister Orange.
In this podcast we discuss:
- Historical trauma and colonialism, and the effects they have on eating disorders
- The lack of diversity representation in the body positivity movement
- Punk and eating disorders
- Healing vs. recovery
- How to have a self-care filled home based healing practice
