It’s Pronounced Metrosexual is a comedy show and online resource about snap judgments, identity, and oppression. It’s a site where advocates of social justice can find helpful articles, fun graphics, and other resources designed to be shared in an effort to advance social equity. The show is performed by Sam Killermann at colleges and universities.New book! I just published Unlocking the Magic of Facilitation, a book I co-authored with Meg Bolger of the Safe Zone Project. I’m really proud of it, and it is in many ways the “how” to a lot of the “why” and “why” on this site. If you care about the things I write about here, and you’re struggling with how to share them with others, this book is your book.
Helping good people better help other people be better people.

About Sam Killermann
Sam is the author of A Guide to Gender, which is a full exploration of gender from a social justice perspective, with humor and comics sprinkled in. Gender is one of those things everyone thinks they understand, but most don’t really understand at all. Kind of like the usage of the word “irony” (isn’t that ironic?). He gave a well-received TEDx talk where he distilled a few hundred pages of gender-bending discourse into a few minutes of fun, energetic, and, with some luck, comprehensible speech.
As a self-labeled “social justice comedian,” he spends a lot of his time trying to prove to people that this label makes sense. Sam is a dedicated ally and advocate, and blends humor into much of the work he does because he believes (like Mary Poppins believed) that sugar helps the medicine go down.
Outside of It’s Pronounced Metrosexual, Sam is the creator of Let’s Talk About Gender, founder of the non-profit Gamers Against Bigotry, co-creator of The Safe Zone Project, is always working on other social good projects, and likes to spend a least a couple hours a day cycling around sunny Austin, TX, where he counts himself as lucky to live.
