E-commerce company Bonobos launches a socially empowering campaign that aims to defeat stigma and open a platform for discussion of what masculinity means. In an interview-style video that is launched under the #EvolveTheDefinition initative, Bonobos invites 172 men from various ethnic and sexuality-related backgrounds to speak about the topic at hand. The company also taps into the inspirational trans athlete and celebrity Chris Mosier to find out what masculinity means to him. The results are motivational and empowering to say the least.
Bonobos' video highlights the stigma-inducing and highly restricting formal definition of the term. The heartwarming campaign flips this limited understanding of masculinity in the context of the evolving contemporary society, tying it to values like honesty, being able to express emotion and to be brave enough to be who you are.
