As part of our free 'Lunch and Learn' Support Series during the COVID-19 pandemic, we're offering an important discussion on Body Image and Eating Disorders especially as it relates to the LGBTQ+ community.
First Segment: We will focus on issues that adolescents (including gender variant) face when confronting body image and disordered eating. Here, you'll gain a better understanding of some of the underlying causes and how parents can help address some of these concerns.
Second Segment: Here we will discuss eating disorders and body image in the adult LGBTQ+ community - including appearance concerns, gender dysphoria, and menstruation. We will cover lesbian and bisexual women, gay men, bears, transgender populations, people of color and many more.
