Do I look fat?
Travis Matthews is a trainee psychotherapist and film-maker based in San Francisco. He has recently finished a film, entitled 'Do I look Fat' dealing with issues of weight and eating amongst gay men.
'Do I Look Fat? is a feature-length documentary with fat on the brain -fat that we feel, fat that we think and all sorts of fat problems that manifest from fat-phobic thinking inside the fat-wary gay community. As one person puts it, "fat is the little word with big meaning." '
Through interviews with a number of gay men as well as several professionals, Travis tries to unpick some of the issues which might lead to eating problems in this group.
I haven't yet managed to see the film, but it sounds like a great project. You can find out more about the film and the filmmaker at the film website.
