What Makes Men Cry?

“That’s an important feeling for anyone to feel.”

Do you know what makes men cry? Society sets up a toxic norm that says you’re not “manly” if you’re in touch with your emotions.

In this video, several men share what makes them cry – and how they navigate and struggle with the messages that say they shouldn’t. This acknowledgement of how crying can be healthy and healing for everyone, including men, is an important piece of the puzzle in cultivating emotional health for people of all genders.

If you’re a man, we hope this reminds you that it’s okay to express your emotions, and to let it all out when you feel ready. What makes you cry?
