A psychology PhD student at UWE Bristol, Rebecca Jones, is doing a study on how eating disorders affect lesbian and bisexual women, inspired by her own experience. Jones says of her research:
Analysing interviews with a small number of self-identified lesbian women with a history of anorexia and/or bulimia indicates that many of the ways in which these women described their eating disorders were similar to those identified in research with girls and women assumed to be heterosexual – such as a search for identity, an exertion of self-control, and a pursuit of feminine beauty.
The details of the study will be published in Psychology and Sexuality.
