Bullying is a worldwide issue, and social media has only helped it grow. In solidarity with the #DanceFree campaign to prevent bullying and body shaming, I organized an impromptu dance party in front of the Abraham Lincoln mural in downtown Lexington, Kentucky, USA.
If you’re unfamiliar with the #DanceFree movement, this all started when a man named Sean (aka “The Dancing Man”) was cyber-bullied and body-shamed in a viral photograph. A group of women launched a campaign to find Sean and throw him a party where he could dance free, as himself, without fear of shame, bullying, or public humiliation. Today, Sean and the women have teamed up to build a larger, global movement against bullying of all types.
