"What's (BODY) LOVE got to do with it? Understanding body image in the context of gay men's health & wellness" Gay and Bisexual men often live and work in the context of a community where there are powerful norms regarding body image. What is an acceptable body type is often associated with social and sexual capital. Muscular? Lean? Tall? Short? Hairy? Scruffy? Hairless? Young? Six pack abs? How one feels about one’s body has implications for a host of health outcomes including mental health, physical health, and sexual health. This presentation will talk about the role of body image in gay men’s health and review the literature in this area. In addition, specifics will be paid to men of colour, men living with HIV and the role of porn in relation to body image. There will be discussion about the ways in which HIV providers can consider how to address body image issues for the gay men they work with. Part of the Our Agenda campaign (www.ouragenda.ca or www.notreagenda.ca) Presented by David Brennan (OHTN, U of T)
