Social Media, Intersectionality and Eating Disorders: Recognising the impact on the LGBTQIA+ Community
Time & Location
About the Event
In this session, we will explore the risk factors for eating disorders and note the unique considerations of the LGBTQIA+ community. With use of varied examples by highlighting voices from this community, presenters will bring attention to how social media and the media inundates us with messages of what is the ideal body, thereby, negatively influencing body image. Lastly, we will talk more about why varied representation matters within the media. Presented by the Bulimia Anorexia Nervosa Association.
