This Burlesque Performance Says “No More” To Negative Body Image

You're Gonna Hear Me Roar!

New York city performer Amanda Trusty is no stranger to the scrutiny the entertainment industry feels entitled to when it comes to women’s bodies. In a (semi-NSFW) burlesque performance at a benefit for Hawaii Island Gay Pride, Amanda refuses to take that criticism any longer. Set to Katy Perry’s “Roar,” she finds a way to let it all go as she literally peels off hurtful words like “cellulite,” “fat” and “suck it in” that have gotten in the way of the joy performing should bring. I have never felt more empowered (and misty-eyed) just by watching someone dance! Read more thoughts from this amazing lady on her blog. Keep being awesome, Amanda!
