Date: Thursday, June 6, 7:30 pm

Presenter: Jonna Fries, Psy.D. 

Title: Eating Disorders in Gender and Sexual Minorities


Hegemonic masculinity, the dominant culture’s feminine and masculine ideals, homonegativity, and transnegativity collude to create a hostile environment toward those identifying as anything other than cisgender and heterosexual. This stigma makes its way through the minds of those identifying as LGBTQIA and manifests in some functional (advocacy, community building, pride, etc.) and some dysfunctional patterns, including manifesting as body image distress and EDs.

This presentation and interactive dialogue will focus on research, theory, and interventions for gender and sexual minorities with eating disorders.
