Duke University student and activist Jacob Tobia took to The Huffington Post last week to discuss his thoughts on gay male body image and self-esteem. The commentary is beginning to make its rounds through Facebook, with HRC North Carolina even sharing it.

An interesting snippet:

It’s no wonder that a study at Columbia University found that gay men are three times more likely to have an eating disorder than their heterosexual counterparts.
