XY: funds needed to maintain the website

More articles about:

Dear friends and colleagues,

Many of you know and use the website XY. I am writing to let you know that I have launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise a small amount of money to support XY. Please go to to offer your support.

XY is one of the most substantial profeminist resources on men, masculinities, and gender on the internet. XY is a resource library, a forum, and a toolkit for change. It’s got hundreds of articles and resources, on violence, fathering, men’s health, pornography, sexualities, class and ethnicity, working with boys and men, and a host of other areas. XY also hosts The Men’s Bibliography, a massive bibliography of scholarship on men, masculinities, and gender, at

The website’s software is out of date and needs a proper upgrade. Also, the site has been run entirely by volunteers, and it’s time for XY to have some proper financial support, to pay someone to do regular part-time work managing and extending the site.

I hope that you can offer what support you can afford to maintain XY as a valuable resource for our work. You will find the fund-raising campaign at

Please do share this invitation.

With gratitude,

Michael Flood.
