We met with about thirty cis and trans people, with different

origins and from different social backgrounds, and asked them

to talk about the evolution of masculinities.

 

Some were twenty years old/in their twenties in the 1970s,

others are twenty years old/ in their twenties today/now.

 

In-depth face-to-face interviews were conducted in various

regions of France, in cities, suburbs and rural areas,

depending on where ads and random encounters brought us.
