The gender neutral term for “ladies and gentleman” is “distinguished guests”. This has been around since at least the 60s, so no one is going to question your use of it.
Please, please use this along with “ladies and gentlemen” if you aren’t entirely sure of the gender of your audience.

women with bodies like this should never be ashamed because there will always be men like me who love them
That’s not a good reason not to be ashamed. They should not be ashamed because bodies are diverse and natural and beautiful, not because they’re aesthetically pleasing or sexually arousing to someone else. Someone else appreciating your body can help you to appreciate it more yourself, but that shouldn’t be the end goal.
Unlearn beauty standards, learn to love your body with all its weird jiggly bits, bony bits, flabby bits, oddly-coloured bits, hairy bits, smooth bits, and skinny bits. Do it for yourself, not for someone else. All bodies are beautiful.
Your beauty does not depend on whether or not men find you attractive.
