Does the way you look affect your everyday life and relationships?

Have you been diagnosed with an eating disorder or BDD? Are you looking for answers?
Are you a friend, partner or relative who’s desperately worried about your loved one’s self-image?
If so, the BBC is looking to make a sensitive documentary film and would like to speak to you.

Body Image In The LGBTQ Community

An assistant producer from the BBC has recently got in touch with me as they are currently making a series about LGBTQ+ life in the UK. He is currently researching into Body Dysmorphic Disorder and Body image for the series and asked that I reach out to all our readers to find out whether anyone might be interested in sharing their experiences with him. All conversations would be completely confidential and would be to help him develop the series and ensure that it includes the most pertinent issues.

If it is something you think you might be interested in then please drop him an e-mail at or you can give him a call on 07914 131222.

Thanks for reading. I hope you can help.
