Through powerful stories from his own life, Connor illustrates the detrimental impact the “man mask”
has caused in the lives of many men and how this perception has generated a world of stereotypes that
halt the forward progress of equality. Stereotypes fuelled by the man mask have produced a culture in
which many men experience internal conflict and internal challenges. These contribute to isolation,
depression, suicide and aggressive demonstrations of dominance towards women and other men. Connor’s
solution: take off the man mask and find the freedom to experience self-expression.
Connor Beaton went from working in the gravel pits of Northern Albert, to traveling the world singing
