Gay Men Share Their Body Insecurities
How do men feel about their bodies? Just like women, men have insecurities about parts of their body and those insecurities can be an issue. These 21 men talk about their insecurities and the struggles of dealing with those issues within the gay community. It's an intimate look inside the minds of men.

As these men show, insecurities can wreak havoc on a person's life.

I'm a gay man who hasn't had sex in almost 8 years due to insecurities and issues with my body
I'm insecure about my 
body because I'm very skinny and pale. And being gay makes it worse because we're expected 
to be attractive.
I always felt confident about my body shape until I started seeing how the muscle gay guy is glorified in the community. I'm just a skinny guy hiding behind the crowd 💔
Tired of getting rejected 
by men just because of 
my body, even by guys just as chubby as me. Gay men are worse than women. 
I'm working on my weight but they can't change 
their bad personalities

The struggle.

Having a twink body type 
I feel like I've been doomed to be a bottom forever 
and that's not what I want.
I'm gay, I don't have the picture perfect body, and I feel like gay guys a re so shallow. I deserve to be loved for more than just my body but I feel hopeless
I hate being self conscious about how I look. It seems like every gay guy is hotter than me and therefore out of my league.
I'm a gay guy and I hate when other guys tell me to shave my body just because they don't think I should be hairy. Everybody has a right to do what they want with their bodies.


Im gay and I don't like my body. That's the only reason I'm still in the closet.
Sometimes I feel like I'm not good enough cuz other gay guys don't like me just because I don't have a toned body or muscles
Being gay is hard, I hate the way my body looks, I am not skinny enough, I don't have abs ... It's got to the point to where I'm throwing up after I eat to avoid the pounds

It's tough to deal with.

Im Gay and can't get close to a guy because I'm so self conscious about my body, size, appearance etc. I feel like I'm expected to look like a 10 .. but I'm not
why does every gay guy I talk to seem interested until they see my body. it's not like I'm fat. isn't there any hot non judgemental gay guys out there?
I hate being fat, single and gay! No matter how much I workout and eat right my body doesn't change, gay guys don't like fat guys. So depressing.

What do you do?

I don't know what to do with my body. I'm skinny-fat now, but I could either be a twink or a lean guy. 
I really wish the gay community wasn't so shallow and superficial.
I'm scared to lose weight because I've found 
comfort in my body 
despite the fact that 
I hate it. Being gay and 
fat is harder than 
people realize.

How do you deal with it?

I'm insecure about being gay as a FTM. I pass as cis and am masculine so I worry that people won't be into me as soon as they realize I don't have a 🍆
I always feel insecure about my body and that no gay guy will actually like me for who I am and who I will be.
My boyfriend is insecure about me talking to other guys but sometimes I just need some gay friends to talk to and hang out with.
Sometimes I think I'll never find another gay guy that likes my insecurities
