"My Body is Political" witnesses the power that all social markers people carry in their bodies: queer, black, "favelada", peripheral, trans. Power is derived from non-normativity. Therefore the bodies perform this by proposing new paths, new perspectives that question the status quo, and the preconceptions of right and wrong, inside, outside, center, and periphery. And you, why is your body is political? Make a response and post it on social networks with #mybodyispolitical
