i love my lgbt body weight gay community

It’s been a process to accept my body. There’s been ups and downs as far as weight and getting to know myself as a gay man in New York City. It’s even harder in the gay world because the body is everything. It makes a difference what you look like in this community. It’s unfortunate and it shouldn’t be that way, but it is. There are certain areas in New York City where things will be easier for you and not. I’ve definitely been in some bars where no heads were turned. And I’ve been in some bars where all the heads were turned. It just matters where you’re at, but New York has all of that. 

I just realized how fantastic I am no matter what size I am. Whether I’m the skinniest of the skinny or the largest of large, there’s so much more to me than meets the eye. I’m great with my body.
