An experimental narrative short that navigates manhood through the queer male lens. As a sexual assault survivor, I’ve had a turbulent time understanding love, sex, and men post-rape. This film is my way of syphoning out my issues with my sexuality and my relationship with myself. Not being able to relate to other men, let alone talk about it has made me turn my flashbacks, my suicidal thoughts, and my rage into visual poems. “The B-Sides” looks at the other side of the rape culture coin and explores manhood through vulnerability and sensitivity. In exhibiting the emotionality of manhood, “The B-Sides” denounces the normalization of toxic masculinity.
