JD Samson - musician
- member of Le Tigre
came out as a lesbian at age 15
- well known for her outspoken support of both LGBT and feminist causes
- graduated from Sarah Lawrence College in 2000 with a degree in film
- she put out a video addressing her facial hair:
“to change the way girls value themselves and teach them to be loud.”
Samson does this through opening a dialog about her facial hair.
Celebrating body positivity, Samson’s video seeks to remove the shame
and stigma that comes with feeling the need to change certain parts of
ourselves to conform to societal beauty standards.
