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 authentic self, sexually and emotionally safe
  • Belonging and Bonding
  • 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
