 Lillian's TEDx: Stripping Away Negative Body Image  

Published on Mar 30, 2015, over 250K views on YouTube


Studies have shown that the media’s portrayal of women’s bodies has a severely negative impact on the self-image of women and girls. But what about seeing positive images of women? Actor and Burlesque performer Lillian Bustle grew up battling body shame and harassment that colored her view of the world and her own worth. This performer’s immersion in the New York Burlesque scene and her resulting paradigm shift inspired her to delve into ways women can experience their own bodies in new and affirming ways. In this talk, Lillian discusses self-esteem, risk-taking, and diversity, and offers practical techniques for destroying self-negativity.

Lillian creates programs for any group, organization, and age range on the topic of body positivity! These programs include:


  • Interactive workshops

  • Lecture-style speaking engagements

  • Thoughtful roundtable discussions

  • Burlesque movement workshops


Lillian is also available to MC your event!
