Mustache-A-Day: Alyssa Royse


The editors of For the Love of Men want to celebrate this month with a mustache-a-day for  November.

Movember is an annual, month-long event involving the growing of facial hair, especially mustaches, to raise money and awareness around men’s cancers and mental health issues. You can donate to the cause here.

Today, I celebrate Movember (and my general love of prostates and people who have them) with my very own mustache. Note the little bows in it? And the sock-garters paired with the corset. It’s my way of saying that gender is whatever you want it to be. I like mine with “all of the above.” And whatever. Gender is what you make it. No more, no less.

And, those of you with prostates, get ’em checked and keep ’em healthy. I, for one, want you around, to express yourself however you want. (Oh, this party? It was in June. I have no real idea why there was a mustache involved.)
