Leah Cevoli (Blood Kiss, Robot Chicken, Deadwood), brings her body-positive panel, ‘All Shapes and Sizes Welcome: Body Image and Women’s Issues in the Entertainment Industry” to San Diego Comic-Con
On, Friday July 19th at 7pm, Leah Cevoli, along with-Adrianne Curry (Winner of America’s Next Top Model Season One),Helenna Santos-Levy(Ms. in The Biz),Miracle Laurie(Dollhouse),Gloria Shuri Nava(Glowpinkstah-Beauty Adjustment),Elisa Jaeger(Cupcake Quarterly Magazine),Dani Lennon(Bite Me), and Chrissy Lynn Kyle(Cosplayer) will take the stage in Room 32 AB.
These outspoken actresses, models, writers, and entrepreneurs will share openly their own journey with body image, eating disorders, discrimination, and the road to self-love. “After years of struggling with my own body image and emotional binge eating, I had one of those epiphany moments. One day someone left a not so nice comment on my profile photo; rather than get upset, or even worse, believe in the negativity, I decided to do something about it, and within a few hours, this panel was created”, says Cevoli, “the first person I reached out to was Ms. In The Biz” founder Helenna Santos-Levy, and the next was the always outspoken Adrianne Curry. These ladies along with Miracle Laurie will be appearing on this panel for a second time, and I am thrilled to have their support and encouragement.”
This panel of change-makers and positive role models will discuss hot topics such as the sexualization of women in Film and Television, beauty myths and mainstream media’s perpetuation of it, eating disorders, and an acceptance for women of all shapes and sizes in the entertainment industry, while inspiring others to get out there and live their best life.
The panel first appeared in March 2013 at Wonder Con to strong reviews, and also included Body Heart founder Amber Krzys, and The Actor’s Diet, Lynn Chen. Cevoli plans to bring the panel to conventions around the world and will regularly rotate panelists.
