What is #BehindTheFilter?
“The idea for #BehindTheFilter was birthed out of conversations with fellow bloggers. Ordinary conversations about life and it’s struggles from mental health to disabilities, skin problems and body image. Some we speak openly about on social media, and others we keep to ourselves”.
On June 25th we are inviting you all to come down to Crystal Palace Park to not only meet the bloggers involved in the documentary, but also be a part of it!!

The movement touches on conversations with British bloggers about anything from natural hair, mental health and living with cancer. The videos will be pieced together into a final documentary, ending with a meetup in London.
What will be in the documentary?
The #BehindTheFilter social pages describe two of the participants that spoke openly about their lives.
‘’Natural Hair blogger Moniqué spoke on some of the issues surrounding natural hair and instagram. She pointed out that shadeism and texture favouritism is very real within the natural hair community. ‘’
Another UK blogger, ‘’Yolanda opened up about her struggle with severe depression and how it lead to self harm. Her most recent tattoo is a cover up tattoo on her wrist to cover her scars’’
