David Levitz, YouTube Personality, Discusses Gay Male Body Image, Eating Disorders

David Levitz is a blogger and YouTube personality whose videos discuss issues affecting the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community with nuance and sensitivity.

Having previously shared his experiences about "How To Be Gay In High School," Levitz utilizes this video to tackle the culture of body obsession prevalent within the gay male community, specifically the rates of gay men who battle with eating disorders.

"I made this video to get a discussion started about the causes and possible solutions to the epidemic of eating disorders in the LGBT community, more specifically in gay men," Levitz told The Huffington Post. "The issue of body image at large has gained more visibility in the past few years, but the LGBT community has yet to become a major part of the conversation."
