Listen up to Tell Us How You Really Feel, at the Bureau of General Services – Queer Division, at the 2019 New Masculinities Festival.
Creator Remy Ramirez writes: “The Tell Us How You Really Feel Project was born out of a deep frustration in my search for meaningful connections with men. After years of dating, I couldn’t understand who men were, why they behaved the way they did, or if they actually loved women. So I went out into the world and interviewed 25 cisgender, heterosexual men of varying ethnicities, ages, and relationship statuses, asking nearly 40 questions, like: What does loneliness look like to you and how often do you experience it?; What does vulnerability mean to you?; Have you ever fantasized about falling in love, having children, or getting married? This project is the collection of those responses.”
The Bureau offers a special listening station for a curated set of Remy’s interviews, during the 2019 New Masculinities Festival. Also on display find a curated selection of books and zines interrogating masculinity.
