Hard-ly Speaking is a meeting of males.

 Now more than ever, we need to front up to tough conversations. To show solidarity by showing up.

 Hard-ly Speaking is a space for the stories that redefine male narratives. Six diverse men speaking to their own unique experiences, all with vision for social change.

 Now is a time to be part of the conversation. Men, open for discussion.
