CARIBANA 2013: Toronto Caribbean Carnival

"NOBODY can make you feel inferior without your consent."

It's been years that Garcia and I have been wanting to participate in our very well known Carnival here in Toronto. I've been here my whole life, so I've grown up watching the festivities and parade every summer hoping that one day, I'd get the courage to put on one of those amazing costumes and JUMP UP to celebrate my culture! Finally this year, we came to the agreement that our bodies deserved to be celebrated just as much as the next chick's! So fortunately, we played mas in this years Caribana Parade for Tribal Knights. Ladies, we did this with our well being in mind. But mostly, we did it for every full figured girl who's backed out or stayed on the side lines because they felt their body wasn't up to carnival standards. Well guess what my love, this is one time of year where NONE of that matters. Let it go, get your arms outstretched and DANCE like no one is watching!

I would encourage any girl with the itch to do this...TO DO IT! We had so much fun and I cannot believe I waited this long to be a part of something so amazing and so culture based. I am so in love with culture and community. And oddly enough, this is the most attractive I have ever felt! Can you imagine?! With no clothes on, hiding nothing...I felt the best I've ever felt. I'm telling you, its WORTH IT! I couldn't have chosen a better time to be involved. Hope you guys like it! Tell me what you think!
