We're looking to collect stories and photos of menstruators of all backgrounds to tackle the stigmatized and "standard" narrative of periods. For far too long, the image of periods and menstruators have been painted as negative and gross. That stigma is compounded for multiply marginalized menstruators who are rarely represented in positive narratives of reproductive justice, including BIPOC people, trans & LGBTQ+ people, disabled people, and people with endometriosis.
Disrupting Period Narratives: First-Person Stories of Menstruation seeks to uplift the stories and pride of those too long excluded from menstrual equity and positive representation. This collection will be shared over social media, through our website, and to students in Madison Metropolitan School District. We hope to change cultural conversations by redefining “normal” periods.
