I personally don’t like the one-sided, limited way the gay community, particularly gay men are portrayed. Introduce the multiple facets of our community. Show the artists, the scientists, the doctors, the educators, the advocates… not just the monochromatic, gay party scene that so many people associate with our community. I think it’s so damaging and discouraging to gay youth to show them that their worth as a homosexual is predicated on physical appearance. I’m nobody to judge someone’s lifestyle, but as gay men, we’re multi-faceted with many dimensions to our existence, and that’s what should be portrayed.
Hi, I have a question which might be too personal. I am a plus-size woman and I have a history of heart disease in my family. It's been on my mind recently and I want to go to the doctor to see how I'm doing physically. I'm just afraid that I won't be able to find a doctor who will be able to look at me as a person and won't just attribute everything to my being overweight. How did you find a doctor who would treat you with respect and look at you as a person?
