Masculinity, Culture, Breaking Through & Becoming Our True Selves

We hope you can join us online on Thursday, June 10 at 6:00PM for a virtual forum and poetry reading which will open up the conversation around identity, wholeness, and what it means to be male in our hypermasculine culture.

Author and educator, Adam Falkner, speaks to toxic masculinity in his latest book, The Willies, and how it effects the LGBTQ+ community in ways that undermine one’s value and one’s uniqueness. Falkner will share readings from his book, and open the conversation to include friends and allies on this important topic. Additionally, our panel includes Sawyer Bethel, LICSW, and founder of the Statewide PRIDE Program, and will offer their experiences from a clinical perspective and how LGBTQ+ individuals, especially the most vulnerable youth, can find support and encouragement. The forum addresses important topics such as mental health, teens-at-risk, getting support and sharing.
