New Steven Universe Dove Self-Esteem Project Video We Deserve To Shine

Cartoon Network USA has released their latest video for their ongoing self-esteem campaign with Dove – the “Dove Self-Esteem Project”, which aims to help people with body confidence and self-esteem issues, the campaign makes use of characters from Steven Universe to help convey the campaign’s message. In the latest video, the Crystal Gems (Steven, Ruby, Sapphire, Ruby and Sapphire’s fused form – Garnet, Amethyst, Pearl, Connie and Stevonnie) sing a song celebrating all body shapes called “We Deserve To Shine”.

“We Deserve To Shine” Lyrics:

We’re small but we’re strong
We’re cool but we’re kind, and
We deserve to shine!

We’re gritty and tough!
We’re smooth and refined, and
We deserve to shine!

We’ll figure it out
There’s plenty of time
For every body and every mind!
And every facet
to finally find that
We deserve to shine!

We deserve to shine!

Along with this positive body image campaign, the show is often praised by the LGBT community for its positive portrayal of same-sex relationships. This week, Rebecca Sugar – the show’s creator came out as non-binary, which means no association to neither gender, she expressed her identity in a somewhat cryptic way, as the gems in the show were developed to be also non-binary.
