Body Image in the LGBT+ Community: Chris's Perspective

"As a gay man I don't think I thought of body image or beauty until I was in my 20's because growing up I was in the closet and I didn't want to see beauty in myself or other men.

Now, after having accepted myself, and finding a man who sees beauty in me, I can see it most clearly in a man's smile and his face first. I was always attracted to faces but never realized it was because I found it to be a part of body image that maybe I was trying to hide growing up. Never looking or smiling too long at other guys."

- Christopher Smith
