The purpose of this website is to cause a shift in masculinities.

We’ll do this by writing long-form content about different areas – relationships, films, lifestyle, current affairs, literature, etc. – and curating events.

Manoscopy uses the plural form ‘masculinities’ as to indicate our belief that there is no fixed idea of what constitutes male identity. We are in direct support of and in line with the study of femininity and feminism, taking influence from these fields to further this attempted shift in modern masculinities.

Manoscopy was founded in July 2015 by Christian Allotey, James D’Souza, Rohan Rice, and Peter Voller.
