In the Daily Xtra’s new series Bare Naked, four guys talk about what it was like to take off their clothes for the first time on camera. They were part of Egale’s new m.bodiment campaign that aims to open up a conversation about gay, bi, trans and queer men’s body image
15 men were asked to participate in an activity about body image. by the end of the activity it had become clear to all those participating that individuals of all body types had had experiences of body shame and marginalization in relation to their bodies. The commonality of poor body image that these men reported experiencing is the result of a larger systemic problem of body-focused discourses and beliefs; It is not individual. But in such a climate it is incredibly difficult to remember that all bodies are good bodies.
