The Body Gossip book is an anthology of more than 300 short body stories written by real people from all over the UK. There are poems, prose and dialogues written about everything body image related including pregnancy, diets, sport, ageing, adolescence, eating disorders, ethnicity, sexuality and disability. The stories are candid, at times funny, often controversial and always inspiring. The book includes a foreword by Gok Wan, as well as entries from a number of high profile celebrities and politicians including Alesha Dixon, Anne Diamond, Nikki Grahame, Craig Revel-Horwood, Jermain Defoe and MP Lynne Featherstone. No matter your gender, age, race, size or shape, you'll find a Body Gossip story you can relate to. The award-winning Body Gossip campaign has been collecting body stories from the public since 2006, transforming them into theatre shows, short online films and the Body Gossip book. In doing so, Body Gossip aims to promote diversity and acceptance in the field of body image. Any profit Body Gossip makes from the sale of the book will go directly towards furthering this message.
