Gay. Disabled. And Sexy As F**k.

The latest in a series sharing body image stories of gay men from across the spectrum of the community.

Ryan Haddad is gay. And as someone with cerebral palsy, he’s disabled. He’s also sexy as f*ck.

A few months ago, I posted a video about the body image journey of a self-identified cub. Throughout his life, he struggled not just with his weight - but to find his place in the gay community. It was a video that struck a chord with many viewers, and became the inspiration for a new digital video series called #ThisIsMe.

The concept for #ThisIsMe is simple: We share the body image stories of gay men from across the spectrum of our community. These aren’t necessarily men who have all the answers or who have figured everything out. This is real life. Like you, me and most of us - they’re on a journey.

Enter Ryan Haddad.

We’re thrilled to kick off our first episode of #ThisIsMe with Ryan.

Here’s Ryan’s journey, in his own words.
