Men, Mermaids, MerB'ys, and Making Change with Hasan Hai

Hasan Hai is the man behind the stunningly popular MerB'ys calendar. I'd go into detail about how exactly this calendar looks, but it is way better if you just go the link in the notes and see for yourself.

This is a great exploration into the way men are often expected to reject glitter and mermaids and the stereotypically feminine.

It is also wonderful to see the work they are doing is also benefiting organizations that work to end violence against women and children.

Inclusion is our jam. Humans of all genders, ethnicities, faiths, abilities and ages are welcome. Good people, doing good things, having fun the whole time – that’s who we are.Ability to grow facial hair is irrelevant – it’s the beard inside that matters most.
