Masculinity. I want both spectacular essay writing and traditional feature writing on this topic.
Feature writers: I pay. You write. (What I want for 2017).

I would love the opportunity to write about masculinity from a queer perspective. Not sure if I can add much more to the discussion but I recently gave thought to revamping a graduate school paper that sought to expose how gay men (or MSM) create (or perform) masculine personas via hook-up apps. I looked at the performative qualities of “virtual masculinities,” their efficacy, and its pervasive nature in online communities. Should these online communities serve as a safe space? Can masculinity be a safe space for growth and love? What is a “safe space” anyways? Do they exist in a world of continual political discourse and questioning? #ramble
