The photo that got me harassed all week | The Body Liberation Guide

I’ve just returned from my first long trip during the pandemic. I traveled from the U.S. west coast to east coast for my sister’s MBA graduation. We come from a blue-collar background, she’s a single mom who fought every step of the way for this, and I’m so proud of her I’m about to burst.ย 

It was a hard trip in a few different ways, but one of the hardest was traveling during an ongoing pandemic that most people are ignoring. Only a few people (as in, could count them on one hand) in each airport were masking, I was the only one masked on all my flights, and was one of three people masking at the (crowded indoor) graduation ceremony.
