Reclaiming the F-Word: Sex, Dating, and Relationships Edition
Join us on February 11th for Reclaiming the F-Word: Sex, Dating, and Relationships Edition.
Have you let your body hold you back from enjoying sex and intimacy?
How have you ever felt your partner hides you because of your size?
Have you ever settled for less than you deserve because of your body?
If you feel your fat body hinders your love life, then you won’t want to miss Plus Amplified’s second edition of Reclaiming the F-Word! Join us for a panel discussion with subject matter experts Tiana Beard, Cheyenne Davis, Megan Ixim, and Melissa Rogers as we get real about sex, dating and relationships. During our networking session, connect with community members who have experienced similar struggles. As with all Plus Amplified events, you’ll walk away with practical tools on how to thrive in your fat body.

Tiana’s narrative approach allows individuals to examine and revise the stories they believe about themselves. Tiana’s goal is to offer individuals an opportunity to view themselves aside from unrealistic societal demands, other people’s opinions, fear, shame, and guilt and therefore create space for genuine care, love, and acceptance for self to develop.
