About Nalgona Positivity Pride

What is Nalgona Positivity Pride?
Nalgona Positivity Pride (NPP) is not your regular body positive project. NPP is a Xicana-Brown*-Indigenous project that focuses on intersectional body positivity, eating disorders awareness, and cultural affirmation. NPP was started in 2014 by Gloria in Southern California with the goal of relating historical trauma, social oppression, and eating disorders have. NPP believes that racism, colonialism, ableism, homophobia, (etc.,) are all factors that lead to violent relationships with food and the phenomenon of destitute body image in communities of color. NPP offers education, social media content, support groups, and an Etsy store.
*In this context, Brown refers to the mixed descendants of the indigenous from (what is known today as) America.

About Gloria
Gloria Lucas is a Xicana womxn from Southern California and the founder of Nalgona Positivity Pride. Straight from the Inland Empire, the DIY punk community in Riverside taught her to organize and since the age of 18 she has helped create Ladyfest IE, IE Riot Grrrls, and Women of Color for Decolonization. Gloria has a background in sexual health education, HIV/AIDS services, and trauma & substance abuse services for women and transgender folks. In 2014, she founded Nalgona Positivity Pride from years of dealing with the lack of women of color representation in the eating disorder awareness community. Like the 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. She lives in Southern California with her two cats, Pepita and Mister Orange.

Receiving this amount of support will allow me to allocate more of my time to researching and interviewing fellow brown women and gender nonconforming individuals who struggle with food and body image.
