About the Event

This week we will come together to talk about how masculinity belongs to everyone and where it shows up in our lives. To quote the article, writer Amelia Ahmen states, "It can take a while to feel comfortable expressing your masc side as a woman. It can be a journey. We often think of the feeling of dislocation between inner self and outer self as particular to trans people, but you don’t have to be transgender to experience this. A synergy between the way we feel and the way we look is arguably what we’re all striving for, and yet as a society we continue to police people in their search to achieve it; if the way they want to dress doesn’t conform to what we deem cool within a subculture or social group, say, or appropriate within an institution, or else if someone’s appearance doesn’t align with what we perceive to be their gender."
