75: Why Gay Men Need A Body Positivity Movement, Too

August 4, 201764 min
“Too many of us have spent too much of our lives trapped in the closet. May we not spend the rest of them trapped in the gym.” I recently came across an incredible article written by a therapist using his voice to proclaim that gay men deserve to move toward a kinder approach and relationship with their bodies. As soon as I read the article, I reached out and asked if he'd be willing to come on the podcast to talk about this important topic.  In this conversation, Zach Verwey and I discuss the barriers to body positivity in the gay community as well as understanding the cultural history around body image concerns that are still prevalent among gay men. This conversation is obviously a sensitive subject for many and Zach and I did our best to talk about this subject with sensitivity and respect.  Links mentioned: Zach's website: http://www.zachverwey.com/ Zach's Huffington post article
