Take a look at this comprehensive report recently released by one of our grant partners, Brown Boi Project, highlighting the importance of a “gender transformative learning” model.
The report includes a glimpse into the work they do with masculine-of-center womyn and men of color that emphasizes mental health, self-actualization, and an acknowledgement of the privileges of masculinity. Brown Boi Project’s report draws attention to the importance of the work they are doing and the nuance involved in addressing issues such as these.
“We believe that the same gender transformative learning that can keep boys of color in the classroom, will also reduce the levels of aggression and sexual pressure exerted on girls, and reduce the kind of gender policing that perpetuates violence against LGBT youth of color.” – Toward Healthy And Whole: Rethinking Gender and Transformation for Bois of Color
