1in6 believes that any effective healing process must both honor and occur within the multiple contexts of each man’s life. Those influences, both positive and challenging, combined together in varying degrees, are the foundation for the richly complex and healthy men we strive to be. The complex role sexual orientation plays in a man’s life, especially a male survivor of childhood sexual abuse, is profound and 1in6 is dedicated to both understanding this relationship. With the help of experts in the field we are creating programming to support this community.
Locally, in the LA area we are working with organizations such as the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center, the Being Alive/PWA Action Coalition, and various gay and lesbian centers on college campuses to explore the issue of abuse and craft meaningful and responsive information.
