Episode notes

Is there more pressure to look good in the gay community? And could it be contributing to a rise in gay men suffering from body dysmorphia? In this programme for Virgin Radio Pride ALEX MILSOM investigates the pressure on Queer men to look perfect, and the extreme lengths they go to get there.

Alex meets reality TV star CHARLIE KING to hear how his traumatic experience in the public eye triggered his body dysmorphia, driving him to get plastic surgery. We hear from the gay personal trainer MATT BOYLES trying to help his clients have a healthy relationship with their body, chat to clubbers in Soho about body dissatisfaction and the brutal realities of dating, and find out when to seek help and how with the BDD FOUNDATION.
