VICTORIA EMANVELA and CAITLIN METZ are On Being In You Body: a small press that creates zines, various publications, runs workshops, an online course, and artist residencies based on radical embodiment. “We collect stories and make space for different voices and believe that “together” is the way home. OBIYB is a space for womxn, queer and non binary folks to feel supported and together. It is about reclamation, discovering, remembering, taking back what was taken from us. And writing, writing, writing ourselves. It’s about shifting our narratives from victim to warrior, taking up space and subverting resistance with empathy, compassion and vulnerability. OBIYB is here to hold space and to fill up space in bodies that deserve to feel safe in their skin. We are here to question everything and acknowledge our own experiences while believing and honoring the experiences of others.” Caitlin Metz offered Forever a Rough Draft : A writing and movement workshop in April 2017.

Self-taught as a chef, he co-founded Origin Meals, a Paleo-inspired meal delivery service. Now he devotes himself to another meaningful pursuit with the founding of Wyld Joy.
