Do This: Embrace your beauty

What size is your beauty?

Well, lots of stuff, but the best way to get that answer —at least locally —is Embrace, a film that follows body image activist Taryn Brumfitt as she delves into the complex issues of fat shaming, body images and our ideas about what looks good.
