Human Body Project Vulnerability Vigil #39

Friday, October 24, 2014

4:30-5:30 PM
Douglas St. near Queens Ave., Victoria

For a Human Body Project Vulnerability Vigil, activist and Royal Roads instructor Tasha Diamant stands naked on the street at least once a month for an hour. She uses her naked body to share and create space for vulnerability, as well as to honour and stand in soildarity with those who are most vulnerable.

Diamant holds a sign in front of her body in a gesture of gentleness to those who are affronted by nudity.

She herself does not feel comfortable with presenting herself naked. "It's not about comfort," states Diamant.
Diamant invites people to join her, dressed or un-.

She is constantly making efforts to explain how this work can be understood. Her latest blog post is entitled, The Destruction of the Earth is a Crisis of Masculinity.
