The following presentation will review the current literature on body image perception in the gay male community. We will examine the experiences of gay men within American culture and discuss how the media influences the gay community which then reinforces an "ideal" body image for gay men. Current models utilized with sexual minorities will be examined with a focus on the strengths and weaknesses in regards to gay men. Counselors attending this session will be made aware of how body shaming occurs within the gay male community, and how involvement with the gay community can influence gay male clients struggling with body image concerns.
