Artistry Against Misandry is hosting an International Men’s Day 2012 event in Nashville, TN. AVFM’s very own, John The Other, is scheduled to be a special guest speaker amidst performances by regional bands. Although the official day of annual celebration is 11/19, the greater IMD organization has approved our celebration for Saturday, November 17, 2012 It will take place at The Listening Room in downtown Nashville, from 6:00pm – 10:00pm. The event will be all ages and open to the general public. To my knowledge, at this point, this will be the only MRA-hosted IMD event in the United States for 2012. It will be a historical starting point from which many future celebrations will hopefully come.
The regional theme I have picked for this year is “Overcoming Misandry through Introspection and Positive Personal Action”. This will encompass many topics we, as MRAs, discuss within the MRM and it will emphasize the importance of personal growth as a precursor to making the best choices in order to live a long, safe and healthy life. The phrase “man up” will be up for dissection and the detractors that men face in western society will be exposed. Free literature on various resources and life options promoted within the MRM will be supplied to the public. The local male medical clinic will be invited to join the event as well. A raffle will be held in which participants can win prizes from local businesses. Families will be invited to attend as there will be entertainment for the kids as well.
The IMD organizational committee has appointed me Regional TN (USA) Coordinator for International Men’s Day 2012. I plan to uphold this title with honor and to do the MRM justice; however, to execute these goals I need to secure the monetary funds necessary for the promotion and production of this event. Fliers, brochures, online and print promotional ads, the venue’s staff and the entertainment need to be paid for. Believe me when I say it is something I abhor doing; however I am asking you for any donations you are able to provide. I cannot do this alone but with your help we can make our presence and message known. You can send funds via clicking on the “donate” button on the home page of Artistry Against Misandry. I thank you in advance as your help means more to me than I can ever express.
