"This Is My Body" Excerpted in German Book

Got an exciting request today:

A Dr. working at the Institute for Queer Theory in Berlin requested permission to use an excerpt of the script from my film, This Is My Body (co-created by Siobhan O'Loughlin).

The book is currently titled "Global Justice and Desire: Queering Economy" and is being published by Routledge. 

This is super exciting! This is what it's all about - connecting with people via my work, having an effect on people. 

Here's the excerpt that's going to be used:

"This is my body. I do what I want with it.

This is my body. I make my own choices.

This is my body. I use it as a canvas,

tattoo it, decorate it, and pierce it.

I take medicine if I want to and only undergo medical procedures I choose.

I eat what I want, exercise for my health, and wear what I like.

I fall in love with whomever,

fuck/sleep with whomever and marry whomever I choose.

I decide when and how to become a mother.

This is my body, not yours."
