Tough Guy Book Club

I always tell people that I found Tough Guy Book Club just in time. I was living alone, spending most of my free time alone and working too many hours to make up for a lack of social connection. Then a friend suggested I join him at a new book club he found - Tough Guy Book Club - and my life was changed. I met men in a similar position to me - people that had recently moved to the city, feeling lonely and looking to meet new people. That was in October of 2015. I've attended Tough Guy Book Club almost every month since then. Thanks to Tough Guy Book Club, I've seen men break out of their comfort zone to talk about things like mental health, physical health, concerns about alcohol and drug consumption, and even their intimate relationships. With over 50 chapters across Australia, New Zealand, the UK and the US (and hundreds of members), Tough Guy Book Club has become a place where men talk to each other and help one another to improve their lives. And there is a dedicated group of volunteers working to ensure that the club will be there for the next guy who needs it.

    I totally agree with this nomination. I’ve been impressed by the way that the club has spread organically with chapters across Australia, all through the determination and commitment of its core team and new members.

    The ability to welcome in people of all interests and backgrounds, to come together in creating a safe space for communication and support is amazing. It would be the best if the organisation was able to secure some funding and support as part of its continued growth and development.
