In support of uncomfortable conversations

In support of uncomfortable conversations

Sure, talking about your balls can be uncomfortable. So can a lot of things.

Our Mission:

Support men (literally and figuratively) in challenging everyday discomfort.

We've partnered with ManTalks to Question the Rules and host a series of (sometimes uncomfortable) conversations about being a man today. No bullsh*t, no filters, #nostatusquo.

Host

ManTalks founder Connor Beaton wasn’t always helping men start conversations. In fact, he was once a professional opera singer who was struggling silently offstage – to the point where he hit his rock bottom: living out of his car while he presented a picture of success to the world around him.

And so, the idea for ManTalks was born. Connor saw the need for a community where men could come together: to share feelings and fears, be vulnerable, and most importantly, support and learn from one another.​
