To me, masculinity isn't about the clothes I wear, or my haircut. It's about the way in which I walk in the world, the privilege that I am given, and the challenges that I face for daring to be who I am. I am continuously carving out my version of masculinity - addressing sexism and misogyny in community spaces and working actively on broader issues through BUTCH Voices. My masculinity is about resisting the idea that I have to be above anyone else in order to embody or prove myself. My masculinity is a set of responsibilities that I hold for myself, to my community (past and ongoing), and to those who are near and dear to me.
