Event description

Description

If you value positive masculinities, healthy relationships, and gender equity, please sign up as a monthly supporter of Next Gen Men on Patreon. We're a nonprofit, reliant on grants and generous supporters like you to support our youth programs in redefining what it means to 'be a man' by engaging, educating, and empowering the next generation of men.


This month's Wolf Pack...

When did you first start noticing what men's bodies are expected to look like, and to be able to do? When did athletic ability start to be equated with being a successful man in your life? Traditional ideas of successful manhood (in North America at least) have long positioned being tall, athletic, muscular and conventionally good looking as important. What does this mean for men who may be aging, differently abled, shorter than average, or just not interested in sports and fitness? How do notions of successful masculinity intersect with different ideas about fashion, self care, nutrition and exercise? How can we embrace our bodies, while still striving for health and balance in our lives? What effect can a negative body image have on men's mental health long term? We have so much to discuss this month. Join us at Playground Inc. on August 28.

Wolf Pack aims to build a community of social support by creating space for the conversations that men don't normally have.

We take on the issues that impact us all, from body image and sex to stress and mental health, through engaging events with insightful guests.
