Positive Selfiesteem

This is a talk about selfies. As a woman, and even more so as a trans woman, I'm constantly told by society that I'm not attractive, I'm not desirable, and that I should be ashamed by my appearance. That, of course, is ridiculous, and part of the way I'm taking back my self-confidence and identity is by taking many, many, selfies. And it's not just me: I've got a twitter feed full of amazing selfies from people who dare to be proud of how they look. I'm going to talk about what selfies mean to me, why they're important to marginalised groups like trans women, and of course, how to take amazing selfies, and flip off the patriarchy in the process.
