Beyonce‘s feminist credentials are constantly being dissected by the media and academics. (One highly respected commentator went as far as calling her an anti-feminist terrorist in a recent interview). Well, here’s a real-life example of Queen Bey’s music inspiring a group of marginalized women to assert their power and sexuality.
Plus-sized fashion blogger Gabi Fresh interpreted Mrs. Carter’s visual album as a call to action, particularly one song. “When I heard Beyonce telling her haters to bow down in the song ‘***Flawless’, I immediately fell in love,” she recalls. So she teamed up with two other curvaceous babes to recreate the video in order to share the message: “you don’t have to be a certain size to claim your flawlessness. Fat is not a flaw.” Watch the trio serve some serious Yonce realness up top.
Let us know if you love Gabi’s video in the comments below.
