Being A Man
Being A Man festival addresses the challenges and pressures of masculine identity in the 21st century.
For its fourth year, we ask what makes a man? The answers come via discussions about masculinity and power, Nordic masculinity, male identity and fatherhood, bullying, porn, teenage knife crime and music, to name just a few.
Some of the confirmed speakers include Simon Amstell, the award-winning comedian and former host of Never Mind the Buzzcocks; Robert Webb the comedian, Peep Show-star and now memoirist; American race and women's rights activist Kevin Powell; the Booker Prize-winning author Alan Hollinghurst, famous for chronicling gay life in modern Britain; and the refugee-turned-moviestar Antonythasan Jesuthasan.
