The Pillow Talk Project focuses on three areas with the intention of ushering in progressive masculinities that nurture, build, and grow, instead of damage, tear down, and destroy: storytelling, digital and social activism, and community engagement.
We’re trying to do the seemingly impossible at The Pillow Talk Project: push the world to rethink not only how we see men, but the archaic, violent, and dangerous archetypes of masculinity that adversely affect all of us, especially women, people of color, and the LGBTQ+ community.
In order to reach such an ambitious goal, it’s important to create safe spaces around the country where men–and those who love them–can begin the process of healing, learning, connecting, and growing, while understanding our own roles in reinforcing such damaging archetypes of masculinity. Only then can we re-work, re-think, and re-imagine ourselves, habits, and actions, igniting change on an individual and collective level.
The Pillow Talk Project focuses on three areas with the intention of ushering in progressive masculinities that nurture, build, and grow, instead of damage, tear down, and destroy:
Through stories, articles, research, interviews, art, performance, etc. we uplift the voices, perspectives, and experiences of men (and women) all over the country that are often underrepresented, ignored, and silenced.
Digital and Social Activism
We create compelling campaigns (for ourselves and others!) that counteract negative stereotypes and divisive rhetoric, while promoting diversity, inclusivity, and racial and gender equity.
Through Pillow Talk events, we teach and foster fearlessness, empathy, and vulnerability using thought-provoking, art-based activities that reclaim the kitchen counters, living rooms, patios/porches/stoops, and bedrooms as safe(r) spaces for necessary heartfelt conversations, learning, healing, and growth.
