Outdated masculine stereotypes damage everyone, so we’re doing something about it through diverse stories that show humanity is more important than terms like ‘man up!’.

Being ManKind Vol. 1 is a collection of inspiring stories told by men from all walks of life. Each is an honest account of their experiences, ranging from the ordinary to the extraordinary. From one man’s use of comedy to break the stigma around anorexia, to a paratrooper who lost his legs on the battlefield and now rows for Great Britain. They offer an opportunity for boys to draw on a diversity of experiences to decide for themselves what it means to be a man. The book wants to show that once you get past polarised gender expectations, you find that the only unbreakable code in humanity is kindness. The idea is that through the stories told, boys and men will be inspired to forge forward as kind and confident individuals, both for themselves and those around them, allowing everybody to succeed together.

For every book sold, another is donated to a school or youth organisation, so that these stories can start to create conversations from the earliest age. The project wants to build a community to make a positive change. This cannot be achieved through one book alone, but hopefully this is the beginning of something much bigger. People from both ends of the gender spectrum are being encouraged to join the conversation and inspire a new generation of kind men.

As Anthony Joshua writes in the foreword, “It’s easy to follow the crowd rather than make your own decisions. Be open, be honest, and be an individual thinker. We have the blueprints of those before us to build our own futures.”

We have just launched a Kickstarter campaign to ensure this conversation can grow to reach the widest possible audience. With this extra support, the Being ManKind team hopes to broaden the conversation by partnering with schools and like-minded charities to create an open-source educational outreach programme, and expand on the stories already told on a new digital platform.

Darshan Sanghrajka, Co-Founder & Creative Director of Super Being Labs, live on our show talking about Being ManKind Volume 1.

During our conversation, Mr. Sanghrajka talked about:

– Some of his manhood journey and his company Super Being Labs
– The story behind the book including some of the challenges producing the book
– He shares a little bit on some of the men profiled in the book
– How has this project has effected his manhood
– The reaction to the book
– His messages for men and those who love them
