Abstract

The concepts of gender & sexuality within counselor diversity training continue to expand & change over time; therefore, it is essential that mental health professionals are knowledgeable of the changes faced by gender non-conforming (GNC) individuals, specifically cisgender men who wear makeup. This includes being aware of the biases and stigmas that GNC individuals face and understanding how those barriers affect their mental health.

Elements that are applicable to this population include: (a) the historical significance & implications of cisgender men who wear makeup, (b) social media platforms where cisgender men showcase their makeup skills, (c) cultural experiences of GNC people, (d) social & systematic barriers that they face, and (e) the ways health professionals can apply this knowledge to their continuing education and training in multiculturalism & diversity.
