Would You Date Me? Being Body Positive In A Bear World
Gay men are thought to only represent 5% of the total male population but among men who have eating disorders, 42% identify as gay. As one of these gay men, I have recently been dealing with being a larger man in a thin focused world and trying to maintain a body positive view of myself. This has been very difficult and I decided to put myself out there and posted a shirtless pic on multiple "Bear" sites. These are my heartfelt reaction to those comments about my body and what I'm living through right now.
