Vienna's male cheerleaders seek to redefine masculinity

Members of the Fearleaders cheerleading team perform on stage in the city hall of Vienna, Austria November 23, 2018. Vienna's female roller derby team have a halftime show most spectators won't forget: a cheerleading squad of a different kind. Armed with blue sweatbands, comically tight shorts and a soundtrack heavy on 80s kitsch, the all-male Fearleaders deliver performances that are camp, acrobatic and crowd-pleasingly funny during the roller-skating competition, but their message is serious.

Members of the Fearleaders cheerleading team perform. The group's website adds: "Fearleading for us means taking fear away. Especially from men. Fear of not being strong enough, not behaving manly enough, not performing masculine enough. We want to get rid of sexual repression, gender inequality, toxic masculinity, homophobia, transphobia ... and many other fears."
