The reasons are many and different for different men.
But as men who love men and enjoy the manly pursuits, intentional community offers:
- Acceptance, a place to be yourself
- Support – help from your brothers
- Shared resources of every sort
- Spiritual growth (that is likely required, as a community always means facing reality, dealing with others needs, etc.)
- Protection from a changing, bigoted, scary world
- Economic opportunity and insight
