Nobody is going to stop Tanis Jex-Blake from wearing a bikini anytime soon.

The mother of five posted to Facebook last week about being fat-shamed and ridiculed at a nearby beach. The post went viral, and ushered in a huge wave of support from moms and other individuals across the world. This past Wednesday, that support could be seen in person at a rally held in Edmonton, Alberta.

Dozens of bikini-clad women gathered, brandishing signs that displayed supportive messages about body image and self-esteem. Jex-Blake was on hand too, wearing the same infamous bikini that was in the photo liked by millions around the world.
