MTV Short Film Takes a Look at Masculinity in America

A new short film from MTV takes a gritty look at homophobia and how gender norms make it hard for us to be who we really. "American Male" explores the behaviors society expects from men and and women from the perspective of a young man who grew up trying to live up to those expectations (Photo: YouTube).

The short film follows the typical "masculine" guy during his daily activities. He can be seen working out intensely, high-fiving his bros, crushing cans of beers and agressively paddling another guy at a party while calling him a "faggot." He lists the many behavioral differences that are expected from men and women, including how they are supposed to sit, how to hold books, what they should listen to, and which alcoholic beverages to drink.

“I would like for viewers to gain a better understanding of what life feels like in the closet,” filmmaker Michael Rohrbaugh told The Huffington Post. “I also hope they’ll reflect upon their own lives and think about falsehoods that might be holding them back. So many of the social norms we’ve been taught are rooted in discrimination, and so many young people are taught to feel ashamed of who they are, raised to believe that ‘there’s something wrong with them,’ that ‘they’re not normal’ or ‘not who they should be.’ Those types of lies are really destructive, which is why they must be exposed and debunked.”

“American Male” is the winner of MTV’s Look Different Creator Competition, which invited up-and-coming filmmakers to create work surrounding the topic of privilege.

Hillary Clinton Reaches Out to Florida's LGBT Voters

Hillary Rodham Clinton has been in the public eye for over 40 years, and for nearly 25 of those years, she has carved out her own legacy, refusing to be a mere mention alongside her husband, former President Bill Clinton. She served for eight years as United States Senator from New York, and then went on to represent our country abroad as our third female Secretary of State. In the upcoming presidential election, she will face Republican nominee Donald Trump. With just weeks before Election Day, polls show Clinton and Trump in a close battle, with each candidate boasting a loyal voting base. Like in past elections, the turnout from Florida could very well decide the end result this time around (Photo: Adam Schultz).
Recently Secretary Clinton sat down with Mike Halterman to talk about her proposed policies should she be elected, the legacy of the LGBT rights movement, and her vision for our country's future. Read the full interview: Hillary Clinton Reaches Out to Florida's LGBT Voters

The 2016 SMART Ride Benefiting Broward House

On November 18 and 19 about 500 people will ride their bicycles along a 165 mile scenic trek from Miami to Key West in the SMART Ride 2016. They will be supported by 250 volunteer crew members.   In 2015 nearly $1,000,000 was raised and one hundred percent of this money went AIDS Service Organizations in Florida to serve individuals who are HIV positive or to prevent HIV. This was possible because 100% of the ride production was supported by donations and sponsors. Broward House is an honored participant and recipient for the SMART Ride. You could be a part of this fulfilling experience by donating, riding crewing or sponsoring.
