I don't often feel like I fit in as a member of whatever group I'm engaging in. After a life long internalization of feeling too black for the white kids and not black enough for the black kids, Brown Boi was a space where I was released from the pressure of conforming. I got to define for myself what my masculinity looked like, and what my blackness looked like.
I became a Brown Boi in March of 2011 and I'm forever grateful for being part of an organization that is committed to fighting toxic masculinity. My vision for my own gender expression is a result of the work and reflection I have done as a part of the Brown Broi Project. And I incorporate the things that I've learned in every aspect of my life.
Please help me meet my goal of $100 for the continued support of the Brown Boi Project!
