Our culture is confused. Like the unsettled parents of a budding Glee fanatic, we’re anxious over unanswered—and unasked—questions about sexuality and gender. Pregnant men and Megan Fox alike entrance the world with their surreal takes on gender, simultaneously amplifying and deconstructing old values. This roller coaster of gender and sexuality propels us on a dizzying ride, and none of us is safe from its turbulence. Feminist soccer moms, straight boys for Gaga, and rifle-wielding army gays are all implicated through the lens of MASC.


MASC Project is a multidisciplinary and multimedia project that interrogates the fetish of masculinity in queer culture. It incorporates film, art, new media and essay, and draws from the fields of cirtical theory, social work, psychology and anthropology. Such work will be featured on the MASC website, providing a home for content and a forum for discussion. We want to foster dialogue across the board and are seeking the contributions of everyone from visual artists to YouTube commenters, radical faeries, butch dykes and everyday people. We encourage anyone who wishes to help to contact us.

Men Photographed in Stereotypical Pin-Up Poses ↘

“Men-ups!” is a humorous project by photographer Rion Sabean featuring men doing pin-up-style poses. It’s interesting how much more absurd some poses instantly look when they’re being done by men.

#HDBOYZ: The Boyz Defined ↘

There has been a lot of buzz around the band the #HDZBOYZ, the world’s first boy band in high definition. At DIS, we are very interested in technology, culture, and music, so naturally we were eager to meet the #HDBOYZ. After much back and forth, we finally got a chance to meet up with the #HDBOYZ during their day off, which they used to buy gear for their new studio space. The first stop on the list was Best Buy, where they were shopping for a DLNA-compatible flat screen TV. To the employees’ dismay, they wanted to try each screen out with their own image, but it wasn’t until they started dancing and streaming live that security came. This was nothing new for the #HDBOYZ though; as member Tabor Robak told us, “Yeah, some people just aren’t ready for the clarity we offer.”
