A lot of people – especially those in the LGBTQIA+ community – struggle with body image issues. For Raven, it was her journey to being a masculine-presenting queer woman who also has a feminine shape to her body. For Richard, it was dealing with the pressure from his father to lose weight and be classically good looking. For both, the preoccupation with body image took a dangerous toll on their physical well-being.
In this episode, Phil and Alex discuss Raven’s and Richard’s stories, their own experiences dealing with body image, and the factors in and out of the queer community that contribute to how we see ourselves.
