Mary Lambert loves her body and she wants you to love yours, too.
The openly lesbian singer, perhaps best known for accompanying Macklemore and Ryan Lewis on 2012’s LGBT rights anthem “Same Love,” debuted her official video for “Body Love (Part 1 and 2)” earlier this week, unveiling her own spoken-word anthem to self-love.
Lambert is serious about her message of self-acceptance and empowerment. Leading up to the video’s release, she launched the #BodyLove campaign on Instagram. As part of the campaign, Lambert shared a photo of a different body part each day and wrote about what she loved about that part of her body. She also encouraged fans to do the same using body-loving hashtags such as #lovemybutt, #lovemyeyes and #lovemylegs.
There are two videos available for the song, both the official video produced by Adam Leeman and Targa Sahyoun and directed by Lambert and Jon Jon Augustavo, as well as the 1 Mic 1 Take version directed and produced by Possum Hill.
