Your Body is Your Own
“I control what I wear, and it makes me feel confident. The opinions of others have no true impact on my day, or my life. I am the driver of my own body, and nobody can take that liberation away from me.”
Nasri is a student and Planned Parenthood activist who uses her voice to stand up for reproductive rights and bust harmful stereotypes about Muslim women.
“My body became my own when I started testosterone. Every hair, muscle, and surgery scar is the result of a decision made from a space of bodily autonomy. My body is my own because I fought for it to exist.” –Dylan
The Director of Health Services Programs and Innovation at Planned Parenthood North Central States, and a passionate trans health activist, Dylan was instrumental in helping PPNCS launch our transgender care program, including gender affirming hormone therapy.
Le and Ray
