🌷About the Disco:🌷

It’s hot outside and we’re READY. TO. SWEAT. Come move your body and know that you are supporting the health and reproductive wellbeing of other bodies in Georgia! A portion of drink sales and 100% of merch profits from this event will go to Planned Parenthood + the Feminist Women’s Health Center (based in Decatur).

🌷About My Illegal Body:🌷

My Illegal Body is a movement whose goal is to cultivate awareness within the Atlanta community about the importance and validity of bodies that are marginalized and oppressed in today’s society. The phrase “My Illegal Body” was coined in response to Georgia’s passing of the “Heartbeat Bill”, but the movement quickly expanded to include other marginalized, and often overlapping, groups who experience systemic inequality, injustice, and control. We recognize the fact that body injustice is disproportionately experienced by people of color. It is our mission, through social media campaigning, branding, retail and fundraising events, to promote human rights and equality, and to bridge the gap between our local community and organizations that promote reproductive, prisoner, sex-worker, and immigration rights. We encourage supporters of this movement to use the hashtag #myillegalbody and #myillegalbodyisvalid to tell their own stories of life in a marginalized body.
