i love my lgbt body anxiety gay bar

"When I came out, there was a certain stereotype of this image, where everyone had to look a certain way and I was never that. I was never going to be that, no matter how much I tried, whatever I did. 

I always had anxiety issues, so I always figured that when I walked into a bar people were looking right at me because I was the biggest one in the room. So I’ve had to kind of condition myself into thinking they’re probably not doing that, and who cares if they are? 

I found my way into a subset of gay men, known as bears. They happen to like how I look. And I like how I look, so I’m working with my weight for health reasons but other than that I’m happy with the way I look. I wouldn’t want to change anything about it."
