Eating Recovery Center In the News: KGNU Independent Community Radio

Eating disorders don’t discriminate; in fact, they affect men, women, boys and girls of all ethnicities and at all socioeconomic levels. Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals aren’t immune to eating disorders either. In fact, according to some studies, gay men are more likely to have an eating disorder than straight men due to increased pressure to meet physical standards that are often considered more “attractive” within the gay community. In a recent interview with KGNU Independent Community Radio (1390AM Denver, 88.5FM Boulder), Eating Recovery Center clinician Joe Eiben, MA, LPC, shared insights about eating disorders in the gay community. Topics discussed included eating disorder warning signs and treatment options, as well as discussion around the prevalence of anorexia and bulimia among LGBT individuals.
