“Wholesome Masculinity” is a message to all the boys and men out there, that it is beautiful to express yourself in unconventional ways and that not fitting the mould is what makes you special. It is time for us to create a new narrative of wholesome masculinity,where men don’t feel confined by society’s standards of what a man is supposed to act and be like, but rather that they should be able to be themselves– fully and unapologetically.
