Followed by an interactive roundtable discussion.

The social stigma and silence around male sexual abuse and assault results in a lack of awareness and understanding about the effects of these experiences, and what men need to move forward.

The Issue

Many things qualify as “unwanted sexual experiences,” even if at first a boy or man was grateful for the attention. It could include an experience that a man may not be ready to label as “sexual abuse” or “sexual assault,” or even understand how it might have been.

Healing can begin when a man recognizes the possible connection between those experiences and common consequences – consequences that can include rocky relationships, lost jobs, self-destructive behaviors, depression, and even violence.

Whatever the experience, whatever the consequence, we can help sort through the confusion – safely and anonymously.

Stories of Survivors

Everyone’s story is unique, but you may find that other men’s experiences shed light on your own.

  • “I can talk about it. It’s still really painful…but if I keep talking about it, something will click…”

  • “The Army gave me stripes. I got ’em quick. But I knew I was hiding behind the stripes.”

  • Tony’s love of acting, and the human connection he found through it, gave him a pathway to healing after he was abused by a mentor.

  • Only when he began to confront what had been so long hidden did David begin to free himself from its effects.

  • Spared repeated brushes with death, Damon focused on healing and has liberated himself from the legacies of abuse.

  • With courage and determination, Nate freed himself from a community that tried to crush his soul, and learned to embrace himself.
