National Eating Disorders Association



June is LGBTQ+ Pride Month, which promotes and celebrates dignity, equality, and visibility for the LGBTQ+ community. Research shows that LGBTQ+ folks are disproportionately affected by eating disorders, and too often, they face barriers to treatment and recovery. #NEDAPride is a social media campaign that recognizes those barriers, encourages self-acceptance, and promotes body diversity for all!

During Pride Month we celebrate the lived experience of others. Please join us in sharing Ethan’s story of recovery and acceptance.
