Asians are considered racial minorities, but there is very little effort to include their people, customs, and or specific issues within the context of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Community. They are overshadowed by other races and rarely taken into account.

..don't know if anyone still reads this community anymore. But I thought I'd post something that was extremely helpful for me in terms of weightloss. The only problem is that my tips are not pro-ed, but I have found that my ideas help me to lose weight faster than if I still had an ed. And live life as well.
I know this is a pro-ed community and that's fine, I'm not trying to convince anyone out of extreme diet restrictions or anything like that.
But I seriously HAVE to post this, because I have lost so much weight! Check out the following link:
this post may seem a little weird but bear with me,
im a photography student at ryerson university in toronto, im in my last year (fourth) and im working on my final project. the focus of my project is girls who live with, or are recovering from, or who have had an eating disorder. this project is very personal to me as i lived with an eating disorder for five years. i used to visit all of these sites and coming back to them has brought up alot of all memories of the girls i met over these sites and the support i recieved. i am not fully recovered but i am really looking into the pressures and feelings that go along with this and im reflecting alot on my own life and the effects of this. my photos will be only from the shoulder up, a classic headshot, because i dont want each photo to be about the body at all. my purpose is to bring awareness to this and put a face to this struggle. i also want to get rid of stereotypes i have found people have about girls who obsess with what they eat. people have very strong assumptions which i want to change. i have the upmost respect for everyone im shooting and im looking for anyone of any age and colour. i am willing to go a distance from toronto so you dont have to come to me if youre not able or comfortable.
if any of you are willing to sit for me or talk to me about this you have no idea what that would mean to me,
please visit my site at www.kajatirrul.com just to see that im legitimate.
feel free to email me in case you want to talk to aside from livejournal
