With their recent nomination for The National Diversity Awards for their work with gender, Davey and Damian take a moment to reflect on society's obsession with gender roles. With men being told to man up, gay men to be more “Masc” and boys fearful of being called ‘girly’, who better to help Davey & Damian explore these muddy waters then the author of The Gender Games herself, the wonderful, Juno Dawson. Through some hilarious confessions and brutal honesty, they learn just why destructive ideas of gender roles damages EVERYONE'S mental health, regardless of what we have between our legs.
Davey, a snowboarding, shirt lifting, media worker in his 30s, has spent the last eight years trying to manage his diagnosis of depression and (eventually) anxiety. With ups and many downs along the way, his need to name, shame and share his demons led him to start this podcast to encourage men to talk about their mental health.
