NOW Magazine's Love Your Body issue

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Jan. 8, 2015) - NOW Magazine is thrilled to announce our Love Your Body issue - hitting the streets today!

"We want to break away from the prevalence of negative New Year's resolutions (lose weight, diet, eat less) and support feeling good about the skin you're in," explains NOW fashion and design writer, Sabrina Maddeaux.

We've photographed 13 inspiring Canadians from all different fields - activism, stage, music, fashion, comedy - who bared (almost) all for a multi-page body-positive photo spread. The pictures are compelling, tasteful semi-nudes with strategically placed props or poses to cover up private bits. We included all shapes, sizes, genders, sexual orientations and more in this powerful and timely issue.

All the participants were also interviewed about their relationship with their own body, with the goal of exploring and celebrating a holistic approach to body image in 2015.

A few of the people we shot and interviewed were: Bruce Dow (an award-winning Canadian-American actor), Tika Simone (singer/songwriter), Julio Reyes (top fashion blogger), Andrew Morrison-Gurza (disability awareness consultant), Matt Mernagh (activist and former mayoral candidate) and Ryan Tyler Thomas (co-founder of Nude Bee Honey Co).

NOW Magazine is available free every Thursday from over 3,310 racks, boxes and newsstands across the GTA, over 75 Gateway Newstands locations in the TTC, online at and on iPad.
