Body positivity and disability intersect in the movement towards embracing diverse bodies. This intersection challenges traditional beauty standards and promotes inclusivity for individuals with disabilities. One example of this is the representation of disabled models in fashion and media, such as Jillian Mercado, who has appeared in campaigns for major brands like Diesel and Nordstrom. These representations help to challenge the notion of an "ideal" body and promote acceptance of all body types.
Furthermore, the body positivity movement has expanded to include discussions on accessibility and inclusivity in public spaces. This includes advocating for wheelchair ramps, accessible restrooms, and other accommodations that allow individuals with disabilities to fully participate in society without facing physical barriers.
