Behind the Masc: Defining Masculinity with Carlos Andrés Gómez at U of T

Friday, March 12th (location to be announced)

brought to you by U of T Sexual Education and Peer Counselling Centre, U of T Community Safety Office, MASC Magazine and others (tba)

An interactive evening with spoken word artist Carlos Andrés Gómez as he comes to University of Toronto for a special intimate performance that looks at what it means to be a ‘good man’ in a world where ‘masculinity’ is confined by the narrowest of definitions. It will also be an exploration of the powerful and beautiful things that can define manhood “…giving men the permission to be the best versions of what they can be”.

Carlos Andrés Gómez is an award winning poet and actor from New York City and a former teacher and social worker. He has toured all across the world and is the 2006 Toronto International Poetry Slam Champion. His work draws attention to challenging and often ignored social issues and delivers an empowering message built on the belief that everyone is “distinctly beautiful.”
