Arielle Scarcella And Nick Laws Discuss Gay And Lesbian Body Image

Posted: Updated:

Vlogger Arielle Scarcella is back this week with another thought-provoking video that challenges gays and lesbians to think critically about the way they view their bodies.

Also featuring fellow vlogger Nick Laws (of Tumblr fame), the video presents the pair candidly discussing the types of bodies that receive visibility and legitimacy in the LGBT community -- and those that are invisible. Scarcella and Laws also discuss the differences between body perception in the gay and lesbian communities and the ways in which these two groups tend to behave differently when they become involved in long-term relationships.

While somewhat rooted in stereotypical notions of gay and lesbian identity, the video raises some valuable questions about body perception within the LGBT community. What do you think of Scarella and Laws' analysis?
