The Disappearing Male is about one of the most important, and least publicized, issues facing the human species: the toxic threat to the male reproductive system. The last few decades have seen steady and dramatic increases in the incidence of boys and young men suffering from genital deformities, low sperm count, sperm abnormalities and testicular cancer. At the same time, boys are now far more at risk of suffering from ADHD, autism, Tourette's syndrome, cerebral palsy, and dyslexia. The Disappearing Male takes a close and disturbing look at what many doctors and researchers now suspect are responsible for many of these problems: a class of common chemicals that are ubiquitous in our world. Found in everything from shampoo, sunglasses, meat and dairy products, carpet, cosmetics and baby bottles, they are called "hormone mimicking" or "endocrine disrupting" chemicals and they may be starting to damage the most basic building blocks of human development.

Even though women and trans* persons tend to have it a hell of a lot worse in our society, I really do feel sorry for cis men growing up these days. The ones just starting to come to terms with their identity. It's a fucking mess. Trans* people have it even worse, of course. ... Much love to any young men reading this and feelin' these pressures.

Stop Telling Women to Smile is a public art series that addresses gender based street harassment. The work consists of drawn portraits of women who have told their stories of harassment, and wheat pasting those portraits as posters with captions that speak directly to offenders on outdoor walls. I started this project as a way to explore social activism through public art.

I wanted to express myself and address the type of harassment that I was personally experiencing in Philadelphia and Brooklyn. As a portrait artist I wanted to use the images of women, personal friends and colleagues of mine, to humanize women in the public spaces - giving faces and voices to the bodies that are sexualized on the street. The process behind creating this work begins by sitting down with a woman and discussing her experiences with street harassment. I now want to travel to create new work on this topic in different cities across the country. I also want to document this! Breaking A Taboo: "You Are Not Alone" Documentary Spotlights Depression Among Black Gay Men. Depressed Black Gay Men (DBGM), a non-profit organization committed to helping raise awareness of depression, will premier its latest documentary, “You Are Not Alone,” this Saturday at the Malcolm X and Dr. Betty Shabazz Memorial and Educational Center in Washington Heights, New York.

Through the courageous sharing of personal stories, “You Are Not Alone” explores many of the underlying social factors which contribute to high rates of depression among Black gay men. “You Are Not Alone” also opens up discussions on the critical issues affecting many Black men and Black gay men who go through life hiding their depression, which can contribute to unsafe sexual activity because they are unconcerned about the consequences, elevated drug use, and even death by suicide. The documentary is a combination of powerful, heart wrenching and poignant interviews and is balanced with professional opinions provided by mental health professionals, academics and religious leaders (Christian and Islam).

The Trouble With Men. Men tend to ‘self-medicate’ rather than seeking medical help for depression, experts say. Women’s health issues often feature in the news, while men are sometimes overlooked. But Thursday night’s ITV Tonight, ‘The Trouble with Men’ explored how mental health issues affect both sexes. The documentary looked at depression in particular, and how difficult it can be for men to talk about their emotions. It asserted that there has long been a stigma attached to the disease, which, some believe, is more debilitating for men than women. Bath Rugby prop Duncan Bell suffered from depression for 10 years before seeking help. Interviewed about the disease, he told Tonight: ‘It wells up from within you. I almost get the feeling of the world closing in.. like tunnel vision.’ ‘I used to think…that depression is a weakness, and you need to smile and how hard can that be?

From a filmmaking angle, the documentary was somewhat formulaic and uninspiring. Sometimes, the production team got it very wrong. 19 Best Depression Videos of 2012. 19 Best Depression Videos of 2012. 19 Best Depression Videos of 2012. 19 Best Depression Videos of 2012. 19 Best Depression Videos of 2012.

Men Get Depression | The Documentary. “I did think John was depressed. It was just difficult for him to hear it and it was difficult for me to say it in a way that was effective, because clearly nagging wouldn’t be helpful.” –Claire Broome John’s Wife State of the Art, Inc. has produced an HDTV broadcast special on Men Get Depression. It is the centerpiece of a national campaign on male depression to increase awareness of depression, reduce stigma, and prevent suicide.

The campaign will culminate with its broadcast on public television beginning in May 2008 (check local listings for date and time). The documentary is dramatically structured in four acts: 1) Putting a name on it. Each act is composed of emotionally compelling scenes in which men, family members and therapists relate personal struggles with depression that in some cases had brought men to the brink of suicide. “Life seemed to rush by out of control. “I’m in the height of my career. “I’d always felt like I was walking on eggshells.
