What is masculinity, what could it be and how do we make this transformation?

An introduction to understanding gender/sex, sexuality and masculinity, how these terms are interconnected and also separate. We will take a closer look at masculinity using different current cultural examples and see how it shapes our ideas and experiences as human beings. After defining toxic masculinity, we will ask what does nurturing masculinity entail? Finally, tools such as transformative justice, systems thinking, queer theory and non-violent communication will be introduced as ways to celebrate and transform masculinity.
