Perth's very own pinup queen, burlesque artist, producer, & blogger.
Hello lovelies, today I want to talk about a more serious topic. I want to talk about the negativity and bullying in pinup. In today’s video I’m talking about my personal experiences, identifying negative behaviour, and giving some tips on creating a more positive environment. This is a call to kindness for us to be the change we want to see in the world.
I’ve met some amazing people through pinup, but I’ve seen a lot of unkind people too. I’ve travelled around the world and seen negativity in pinup communities in many different places.
To improve our actions we need to identify negative talk and actions and replace these with positives, or at least avoid acting negatively. I understand we’re not all going to be best friends, but for me no matter how I feel about someone, I always treat them with respect and kindness.
Let’s take a stand to be accountable for our own actions, and not take part in negativity. Let’s call out ourselves and friends when they act unkindly. Let’s make the world a kinder place!
If you’re experiencing negativity or bullying, reach out to a friend. Reach out to a service if you need assistance, and you can always call life line on 13 11 14 or a relevant service in your area.
I know this is a little different to my usual pinup fun, but I hope this video is still useful and maybe inspires a few people.
