Did you know…
In the United States 30 million
people suffer from an eating
disorder
And did you know…
15 – 20 % of eating disorders are
seen in males
But did you know…
Even
men
42%though
of mengay
with

onlydisorder
5% of the
male population
identify
as gay
This overrepresentation can be the
result of the emphasis on body
image in gay culture
Gay men are more likely to sexually
objectify their bodies than
heterosexual men and lesbian
women
And internalized
homophobia may
constitute for low
self-esteem
associated with an
eating disorder
56% of homosexual men say they
are dissatisfied with their bodies
What can we do?
More research to identify the
differences in eating disorders
between men and women
And treatment options designed
specifically for men in this culture
Clinicians need to learn to
recognize the signs
And we need to
recognize the signs
And within each
Within ourselves
