This Woman Stripped Down for Strangers in Union Square for Body Positivity [NSFW]

Local YouTuber Ginicanbreath recently performed this social experiment in Union Square where she blindfolded herself, stripped off her clothing, and asked strangers to draw hearts on her in the name of promoting self-acceptance and a positive body image.

Her sign read:

“I am standing for ANYONE who has struggled with a SELF-ESTEEM ISSUE like me… ALL bodies are BEAUTIFUL. To support SELF-ACCEPTANCE, draw a heart on my Body.”

On the video page, Gini writes:

I stood for only a few seconds until I felt the first marker lifted from my hand. Then the second. And on an on it went, people coming up to me and drawing on my body. Each time someone came up to me, I felt the full impact of human connection cursing through my body. True and pure love, that we all felt in that moment, that we all feel the same way. We all experience doubt and fear. All I was trying to say was: “Hey, me too.”

The music featured in the video is Zach Gannon.
