Highly sought-out speaker on the topics of eating disorder recovery, body image, and coming out, Jon Derek Croteau, Ed.D., shares My Thinning Years: Starving the Gay Within. As a child, Jon tried desperately to be his father's version of the all-American boy, denying his gayness in a futile attempt to earn the love and respect of an abusive man. With this he built a deep, internalized homophobia that made him want to disappear rather than live with the truth about himself.
