WHO:               

On December 10, Byron Hurt, a national speaker, award-winning documentary filmmaker, lecturer, published writer and anti-sexist activist, will visit Eastern Michigan University to speak about how hyper-masculinity in popular American culture normalizes male violence, how race, class, and gender oppression intersect, how homophobia and transphobia makes LGBT communities vulnerable to male violence, and more.
