"Boys Like Me" Is An Exploration of Male Femininity
Happy Valentine’s Day, fam. We’re taking a peak at how love & beauty are expressed within the Milk community; below, Essence Moseley and Aalany McMahan bring together some men in the Milk community to talk about male femininity in a world of gender stereotypes.
A genuine exploration of male femininity is still rare in a society that emphasizes traditional masculinity. By challenging everything society has instilled in us to believe, we’re squashing phrases like, “Boys don’t cry” or “Don’t act like a girl” and instead embracing the vulnerability and softness that comes with simply being human, regardless of gender. In honor of a holiday that’s all about love, we’ve rallied up some of our guys to speak on self-love and femininity in our zine, “Boys like Me”. Watch the film below and check out the full zine in the slideshow above.
