The Face Of Masculinity

On this episode, we peel away the veneer of masculinity and explore what lies underneath. We hear excerpts from a panel discussion at a screening of Jennifer Siebel Newsom’s documentary The Mask You Live In. We then hear some reactions to the film, touching on why toxic masculinity is a mental health concern and how masculinity is interpreted by gay, bisexual, queer, and trans men.
