Bwoys 3: facing toxic masculinity
As part of an ongoing project that highlights topics in and around Caribbean culture. In part three we stopped to explore toxic masculinity within the community and the effects of this on males within the community. We explore a softer, more unseen side, using makeup as a tool to demystify this misconception that black males need to be ‘a man’ forcing certain tropes and stereotypes. Using this as a freedom of expression each bwoy is standing in their own power, their own person, free enough to enjoy this expression of self.
