Flashmob - we did it!
Saturday 29th June 2013

The first ever #BodyLove Flashmob happened on 28th June 2013, and it was nothing short of epic.

You all got involved in your hundreds, and here are the brilliant pics to prove it.

We invited people all over the UK to write their favourite body part in a Body Gossip heart, and either come along to a live event (which took place on the South Bank in London, in schools and colleges, and at work places and city centres nationwide) or post photos of their hearts online.

This was a political statement against body shame and the industries that profit from it.

We're also inviting you to write your body story and share it with us here, because it could be part of a new script we're devising at the Southbank Centre for a brand new Body Gossip live show!

It's not too late to get involved with our Flashmob. Download your heart, and send us a picture at @_BodyGossip or facebook.com/bodygossip
