So far we have surpassed 13 participants. Yay! #Compassion, #BoysGrowtoBeMen, #MenWearPink #ToughEnoughToWearPink Far to often society sees Men as ”Strong emotionally” and ”Women as expressive” Men appear stronger because as society dictated they must remain in a state of unexpressive. ”Don't ever cry, don't wear pink, don't show them you are weak, be a man, be tough, show...
