The roles of paradox and incoherence in the construction and maintenance of the masculine self remains unexplored in both gender and men’s studies. Self-Organizing Men – through poetry, visual images, prose and humor – seeks to understand how paradox and the failure to cohere to a unitary self creates opportunities for sustained connections to sexual love, the penis, childhood, and vulnerability as well as disrupts traditional transsexual narratives of masculinity and the gendered body. Contributors include: Eli Clare, Scott Turner Schofield, Tim’m T. West, Dr. Bobby Noble, Nick Kiddle, Eli VandenBerg, Jordy Jones, Doran George, Aren Z. Aizura, and Gaylourdes. Editor Jay Sennett is a published author and filmmaker.
