Part of the LGBT SAB QTPOC Speaker Series Workshop description— Traditionally some scholars believed that acts of social protests online never led to real social change. “Slacktivism” was used to describe these protests, focusing on the ease of sharing content that is driven by likes and shares and not by purpose and mission. A few a years ago when Selfies began to be used by social movements to build solidarity, the impact on social change became clear. Now Selfies can be used not just in protest to a particular cause but has evolved to be a source of sustainable daily affirmations that help discover self-love.  Each participant will have the opportunity to take a Selfie and have that Selfie printed and given to them before they leave so that they can be reminded instantly of the power and beauty of their reflection.  ---Workshop goal — This session will explore the historical context of Selfie activism, discover how vital Selfie taking has become to social connections and discuss how it can be used to discover self-love.
