Plot
Bringing together feminism, body image, and sexual orientation, Looking Queer: Body Image and Identity in Lesbian, Bisexual, Gay, and Transgender Communities hopes to convince readers that society as a whole needs to redefine our concepts of body image. By looking at body image issues among lesbian, bisexual, gay, and transgender people and taking differences such as race or disability into consideration, this book bridges gaps left by earlier work and provides a step toward a new focus in the future. This collection, comprised of essays by more than 60 contributors, will help readers find ways to improve their self-esteem and find comfort in their bodies to create a mutually supportive community.
