Instagram Bans Body Positive MeatZine Account

Instagram Bans Body Positive MeatZine Account


Instagram said the account breaches their policies on male nudity, although other accounts post similar images.

MeatZine has released their annual calendar for the past eight years. Organized by Adrian Lourie, the images aim to promote body positivity in the gay community.

"Representing our community is always going to be a work in progress but the meat calendar is a great opportunity to celebrate the bodies of real men," said Lourie.

Instagram recently deleted the zine's account, claiming it violates their policy on male nudity. It's not the first time the account has been deleted. It had previously accumulated 15,000 followers, and since then, Lourie had built it back up to 3,500 followers.

Although Instagram claims the account breached their policy, other accounts have been able to post similar images without repercussion. In the past, accounts from the likes of Warwick Rowers and Greeks Come True have met the same fate, despite fitting the app's standards.
