Masculinity is more than just the attire and having muscles. These aspects help exude how I choose to present myself, but do not make up all of me in totality. My masculinity was earned and I wear it like a badge of honor. Life and experiences have taught me to have strength and to be bold. I've learned how to hold my own and be independent through being assertive and having courage during difficult times. The Handsome Revolution is exposing how individuals, like myself, can hold pride in celebrating our masculinity and it really showcases a spectrum of people who deserve to be represented.
