SOBO is a Body Positive Roll Out

Created by Courtney Shove

SOBO was birthed from the healing I went through from years of starving and purging myself. It came from the joy, strength, and confidence I found when I laced up for the first time. I wanted to create a movement and safe space for all people- fat, skinny, ebony, ivory, cis, trans, and everything in between. I wanted to create a visual that reminded everyone that bodies are just bodies and we are so much more. By showing inches of skin we are told to hate in a public space is a protest and a riot. It leaves a mark on participants and witnesses. 
*SOBO is a DIY/punk/riot grrrl movement. All bodies, all wheels, show up an roll out. There is no financial gain. There are no permits. Skate at your own risk and look out for one another.

THEME: Drag! 
Why? It's Pride Month and gender is a social construct, duh! 
(This is for Queers & Allies)
Drag is a performance of exaggerated femininity, masculinity, or other forms of gender expression, usually for entertainment purposes. Drag usually involves exaggerating the opposite sex's gender stereotypes. A drag queen is someone (usually male) who performs femininely and a drag king is someone (usually female) who performs masculinely. However, non-binary people and bio king and queens do exist. Performances often involve comedy, social satire, and at times political commentary.
