Description

Today’s conversation is one of the most important episodes we have had on the show to date! I had the honor of having James Rose on the podcast to discuss the intersection of gender identity and eating disorders. Body dysmorphia and eating disorders are an extremely prevalent issue within the trans and non-binary community, yet it is so rarely discussed and further perpetuates the stereotype that only white, thin cis-gendered women struggle with eating disorders.   James Rose (they/them) is a non-binary New York City based actor, Health at Every Size Personal Trainer, trauma-informed yoga teacher, and co-host of the Full Soul Nutrition Podcast. They write about gender, eating disorder recovery, sex, their feelings, & their exes on their Instagram (@jamesissmiling) where they hope to leave the internet a little bit better than they found it.   In this episode we discuss:  James’ story and what led James to be passionate about acting, personal training, yoga and eating disorder recovery. James shares their experience coming out as non-binary, and how this was different than their sexual identity coming out experience. Differences between gender identity, gender expression and gender assigned at birth. How gender identity intersects with eating disorders and the ability to receive help. Trans + non-binary people experiences with both gender dysphorhia and body dysmorphia, and how this connects to eating disorders. Transphobia is completely preventable, learn steps we should all be taking to prevent transphobia. How James practices wellness without obsession.   Resources for you: Learn more about our services at Nourishing Minds Nutrition.

FEDUP is a collective of trans+, intersex, and gender diverse people who believe eating disorders in marginalized communities are social justice issues. Their mission is to make visible, interrupt, and undermine the disproportionately high incidence of eating disorders in trans and gender diverse individuals through radical community healing, recovery institution reform, research, empowerment, and education.  Learn more and donate yourself by clicking here.   *Note: We are pausing on working with Primally Pure at this time until improvements in who they chose to sponsor with and brand integrity improves. I do not condone the dangerous ideologies of an affiliate of theirs and incredibly disheartened to learn about this.
