Popular culture glamorizes macho, meat-grilling, over-sexed men. We’re so busy strutting around like peacocks that we seldom stop to consider; Is this really what being a man is all about?

The hyper-masculine narrative we’ve known from the day we were born taught us not to value what culture has feminized; caring for others, relationships, empathy, compassion... but what if those “feminine” characteristics are actually essential qualities that work in tandem with the more traditional masculine traits to form the building blocks of a good, complete man?

They are.

Compassionate Man is a monthly digital magazine that celebrates men who challenge the simplified caricature of masculinity that our culture promotes. We feature guys who are out there making the world a better place; who are genuinely good men; who are working to protect the most vulnerable beings on our planet.

If you’ve felt out of step with our culture’s idea of masculinity, then this magazine is for you. Be inspired to let your best side shine through.

The world needs more men like you.
