PRESS for "Locker Room Talk"

DAILY FREEMAN: “The TMI Project founded by Eva Tenuto, along with Stockade Works ... approached the school district because they wanted to partner with us and work with our football team and with them about what it means to be a man,” district communications coordinator Kate Heidecker said. [ STORY ]

CHRONOGRAM: "Stockade Works, a nonprofit film production organization based in Kingston, stepped in to document the experience of the Locker Room Talk workshops. The forthcoming documentary follows the teenage athletes as they participate in TMI Project’s writing and storytelling workshops. 

“Stockade Works is proud to be documenting the process so the message can be shared en masse to create real and lasting social change," says Masterson.

In the documentary, the high schoolers respond to a presentation by Porter, who explains the concept of the “manbox” as “how men are collectively taught,” or “the collective socialization of manhood.” Throughout the process they are encouraged to talk about their emotions in a way they may not have felt acceptable under their previous socialization.
