Sensitive Men Rising – the Documentary first came to our attention when we wrote about Luke Goss being a Highly Sensitive Person. At the time, we didn’t find any information regarding when it was set to launch.

All we had to go on was a trailer on Dr. Tracy Cooper’s YouTube channel.

But now there is an official website, social media accounts, a fundraising page, and updates on the production process.

And it is through these updates that we now know Sensitive Men Rising – the Documentary will premiere on Sunday, June 18th 2023.

Sensitive Men Rising - the documentary June 18, 2023

What is Sensitive Men Rising?

Remember Sensitive – The Untold Story? It’s a documentary film about the Highly Sensitive Person featuring Alanis Morissette, Dr. Elaine N. Aron, and Dr. Bianca Acevedo.

It first premiered in 2015 and is directed by Emmy Award-winning director, Will Harper. And it continues to create awareness and inspire millions of sensitive people worldwide.

Now, Sensitive Men Rising – the Documentary is taking a similar approach.

It’s a documentary film sharing the stories and emotional experiences of Highly Sensitive Men. It will feature a variety of sensitive men, including Luke Goss, Dr. Tracy Cooper, William Allen, Tom Falkenstein, and Boy Abunda, among many others.

And it aims to achieve the following:

  1. Shatter Myths Using over 25 years of High Sensitivity research, Sensitive Men Rising will demystify myths, misconceptions, sayings and stereotypes linked to highly sensitive men.
  2. Acknowledge the suffering and bliss of highly sensitive men – We live in a world full of perceptions on how a man should be and act. This documentary will show the ups and downs in the path of sensitive men towards self-discovery and acceptance.
  3. Recognize the neurological and cognitive impacts of High Sensitivity in men – How does being a Highly Sensitive Person affect you as a man? What are the advantages and disadvantages? Sensitive Men Rising will answer these questions and more.
