Waking Men: Working to Demolish Patriarchy & Embrace Feminist Masculinity With Sincere Kirabo

I conceptualize social justice as liberation; so for me, Black liberation looks like the disruption and elimination of all oppressive ideologies (e.g., anti-blackness, misogynoir, trans-antagonism, etc.) and policies (e.g., prison industrial complex) that harm our communities.

Event Description

Black liberation cannot exist without disrupting the patriarchal ideologies and behaviors that oppress the most vulnerable among us: Black MaGes and Black queer folk. Waking Men is a workshop devoted to engaging that process by:

  • Using accessible language and exercises to deconstruct and discuss patriarchal masculinity
  • Identify unhealthy models of thinking and behavior that diminishes the value of femininity and all non-cisgender, non-heterosexual males
  • Confronting the various ways the Black male collective fail Black MaGes and Black queer folk
  • Explore paths to healing and adopting feminist masculinity
  • Introducing action steps to hold ourselves and other Black men accountable

Who Is This Event For?

Cishet Black men

Workshop Goals, Hopes, & Outcomes

I would like to provide Black men with motivation for introspection/self-inventory and to provide tools to exchange harmful ways of thinking and behavior with healthier ways of navigating the world.

Presenter Bio

Sincere Kirabo is a social change instigator from the outskirts of Washington D.C.

“I believe in Black liberation. I also believe in a world free of policing and caging humans. But it’s impossible for us to be free until all of us are free. It’s also impossible to abolish the prison industrial complex without also abolishing the patriarchal ideologies and behaviors that oppress the most vulnerable among us: Black MaGes and Black queer folk. It’s vital that we/men hold ourselves and each other accountable in order to disrupt the countless ways the oppressive state of patriarchal masculinity shows up in everyday life.”
