This week co-hosts Orie & SaRea are investigating what it means to be masculine within our queer communities, in the first of a three-part series.
Sociology Professor Steven Dashiell, a researcher focusing on masculinity in marginalized groups, joins us to give insight on definitions and controversies in masculine identity. Dashiell discusses several prevailing theories in masculinity, and why conflicts occur as individuals assume various identities along the masculinity spectrum.
And, we talk to two people in our Real Queer panel who challenge the stereotypes many hold about TransMen. Nik Peet, a radical queer activist by his own definition, believes that being a man and having masculine identity doesn’t negate femininity. And, writer and activist Shaan Michael Wade talks to us about how Trans Men who have sex with men are invisible within queer spaces, and the effects of that invisibility.
Plus in Evening T we discuss the awesome week Laverne Cox is having, and the disappointing results of the 2015 Studio Responsibility Index released by GLAAD this week.
