Eating Disorders and Social Justice: An Interview with Nalgona Positivity Pride’s Gloria Lucas

An Opal: Food+Body Wisdom Podcast

 

How are eating disorders a social justice issue? Gloria Lucas, founder of Nalgona Positivity Pride, has a world of wisdom to share in explanation. She joins host and therapist Carter Umhau, LMHC to explore historical trauma and eating disorders. Gloria created Nalgona Positivity Pride–a Xicana-indigenous and body-positive organization—to offer support, education, and mental health resources for people of color struggling with food and body image issues. Today, she offers illustrative bits of her own recovery story and educates the audience on how people of color need to be centered in healing spaces.
