Gender, Sexuality & Eating Disorders – Butterfly: Let’s Talk Season 1, Episode 3
One million people in Australia will struggle with an eating disorder during their lifetime, and a significant number belong to the LGBTIQA+ community. Yet only 25% of those living with an eating disorder will ever seek help because they don’t fit the stereotype.
The history of discrimination against LGBTIQA+ people, along with not enough trained professionals to serve this community, is why many do not get the treatment they need. The good news is there are people working to change things. In this month’s Butterfly: Let’s Talk podcast, we talk to Katie, Mitch and Kai about their recovery, and Dr. Scott Griffiths and Tarn Lee from the National LGBTI Health Alliance who work in the space. Let’s talk.
