‘Masculinities’, the third instalment of ‘SOFA’ magazine, addresses current news headlines in context, as today’s crisis of masculinities marks both a process of collective transformation and spiritual implication. We are in the midst of a major cultural shift, one that requires compassion and a diverse male presence. With numerous contributors covering topics like #MeToo, body image in the social media era, the influence of porn and gaming, love in the tech space, men’s mental health, dad complexes, gay gym culture, and more, the magazine offers a safe space for dialogue in a time when the male species has not been socialised or encouraged to expose vulnerability.
SOFA is a new magazine that uncovers and defines the now and looks into the near future by exploring one tantalizing, terrifying, tantamount or taboo topic per issue while sitting on international sofas with today’s most interesting people.
