Am I Man Enough?: Stories of Toxic Masculinity
In collaboration with Anti-Violence Project to raise awareness about April Sexual Assault Awareness Month, Am I Man Enough? will return to Center on Halsted on Thursday 4/2.
We will have a pre-show reception starting at 6:30pm at Irvine Harris Family Foundation Reception Hall. Several service providers will be present to answer questions. The show starts at 7pm at Hoover-Leppen Theatre. The whole event will take place on the third floor. Please join us for this critical dialogue.
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.
We have a great lineup that includes:
Michael Van Kerckhove
You don't want to miss these tellers. They have important stories to share: about social conditioning, about the ideology of hegemonic masculinity, about their own struggles conforming to as well as resisting against it. Am I Man Enough? is for people with important stories to tell.
