Am I Man Enough? Stories on Toxic Masculinity


In collaboration with Anti-Violence Project at Center on Halsted to raise awareness about October Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Am I Man Enough?: Stories of Toxic Masculinity will return to the virtual space on Wednesday October 27.

Integrating personal narrative with social critique, Am I Man Enough? is the show where people tell personal stories to critically examine the culture of toxic masculinity and the construction of masculinity and manhood, hopefully reimagining and transforming masculinity.
