All Sizes Fit is a positive body image campaign that aims to increase body positivity and decrease the social pressures associated with obtaining an "ideal body." All Sizes Fit focuses on three principles:
Attention: Be in touch with your body and its signals. Your body is excellent at regulating and letting you know what it needs in order to perform optimally.
Appreciation: Appreciate everything your body allows you to do and the pleasure it provides. It is because of your body that you can engage in the activities you love and enjoy what life has to offer.
Acceptance: Accept all the assets you have rather than longing for what you do not. Much of your body composition is predetermined by your genetics.
Please submit this form if you would like to enter the 2021 All Sizes Fit Virtual Art Show. Your submission should be a representation of body positivity, body acceptance, body image, and/or All Sizes Fit. If you plan to enter more than one piece, please fill out this form for each piece.
All entries due by Friday, February 26, 2021. After we receive your piece digitally we will send another form for you to complete where you can share more about your piece (e.g. title, artist statement, etc.)

Our campus has been recognized as the top college in Oregon for LGBTQ students by the Campus Pride Index.

LGBTESS offers programs that are designed to educate people about the truth and diversity of the lives of LGBTQIA+ individuals. Through ally training and panel discussions, we provide opportunities to share stories and ask questions in a way that fosters understanding, appreciation, and respect. Presentations are also available upon request.
Our student-driven outreach teams engage and empower LGBTQIA+ current and prospective students. Whether organizing events, being involved in campus organizations, or taking part in educational panels, our student employees and volunteers connect with the greater campus community, sharing resources to support students’ well-being and academic success.
In addition to our programs and services, there are organizations on and off campus, all focused on promoting awareness, education, support, and appreciation for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, and queer issues.
Resources for LGBTQIA+ students encourage holistic support through mental, medical, and community care. Several scholarships that are based on both merit and need, including our LGBTQIA+ Emergency Fund. Students are also invited to apply for LGBTESS-sponsored trips to conferences.
For students who are currently in or hoping to begin the process of transitioning while attending the UO, the university offers a variety of resources and services.
There's a reason we've been recognized nationally as one of the best colleges for LGBTQIA+ students. From gender equity housing options to LGBTQIA+ protections, we are committed to creating an environment of respect and encouragement for all of our students.
Donate: Support LGBTQIA+ Students in Crisis
You can help LGBTQIA+ students achieve their goals and offer security during a time of crisis!
Queer and transgender students of color are particularly likely to experience housing, food, and healthcare insecurities. The LGBTQIA+ Emergency Fund offers a financial safety net for LGBTQIA+ students. This award assists students in finding secure housing, food, medical and mental health resources, gender-affirming care, and other need-based assistance. Critically, this award prevents interruption in students’ academic journeys.
The demand for this award has dramatically increased due to COVID-19. During 2020, this award has been given to four times more recipients than previous years, with an average of $500 per award. Many recipients of the award are queer and trans students of color, and students with disabilities. You can help LGBTQIA+ students achieve their goals and offer security during a time of crisis.
