Biedrība "Tēvi" Latvijas Dūlu apvienība

In collaboration with:

Kanādas vēstniecība Latvijā

Description:

Traditional masculinity lies on five pillars:

  1. You are weak if you show emotions;
  2. You have to cope with everything yourself;
  3. Avoid feminine choices!
  4. Be aggressively dominant!
  5. Real men don't like gays!

There are other ways to be a man, and yet - in present pop culture it is not easy to spot the ways how. This will be a discussion of what it means to be a man in modern society. Particular attention will be paid to the ability and the need to ask for help in difficult life situations.
