In this manuscript, we engage the topic of racialized masculinities through collective autoethnography—a methodological approach that values how life narratives organically reflect both interpersonal and intercultural dimensions. More specifically, we embrace a layered account whereas our individual and collective points of self-reflexivity inform, and are informed by, cultural contracts theory. Our goal here is not to document racialized and gendered insights for the purposes of generalization; rather, we present a collage of moments that hopefully will resonate with others who strive to negotiate similarly conflicted socially constructed identities productively.
