Our Senior ISVA Trevor visited 10 Downing Street today to represent our organisation at a roundtable on supporting survivors of sexual abuse. We're very proud to have Trevor, one of the UK's first male ISVAs, as part of the Survivors family. . . . #breakthesilence #number10 #downingstreet #positivechange #influencingchange #malesurvivor #isva

I was 13 when it all happened, being a Christian kid grew up in a Muslim country. Our neighborhood had a mosque n a mosque keeper, mosque keeper was a good man who casual come n play soccer sometimes you know. He's someone from the neighborhood... One day he found me n said " hey why don't you come around the mosque there's sweets n gifts I want you to take and give some to the other kids, come around 6 pm okey". I said yes and left n came back at 6 to take the gifts, he dragged into his small house inside the mosque turned off the lights and made me touch his private parts. A weird shock went through my whole body. What is this I asked, i was scared n started crying saying I wanna go home, open the light. He open the lights gave me 3 dollars n walked till the gate of the mosque. #childabuse #childsexualabusesurvivor #malesurvivor #maleabuse #depressionhelp #depression #anxiety #ptsd #suicidial #yourenotalone #shareyourstory #talkaboutyourabuse #survivor #stopchildsexualabuse💇🚫 #fucklife #hate #fakeness #selfhate

Kudos to @nytimes for sharing the stories of 6 very brave men in their powerful expose on sexual assault in the military. Below is an excerpt of the article that everyone should take a moment to read: . . ‘He didn’t speak a word to anyone about having been raped, he said — not for the next 40 years. He had enlisted at 17, and was a few weeks into radar technician school when a group of older enlisted men and officers took some new recruits to an off-base resort. In a private bungalow, after a round of drinking, Mr. Minnix said, the older men told the recruits it was time for their initiation. “At first there was laughing and nervous joking, and then there was silence,” Mr. Minnix said. “I was scared to death. And we got forced into sex acts none of us wanted.” He said the teenagers were made to perform oral sex or were sodomized. “What an awful thing, when you go back to the base the next day and you are facing these people,” he said. Mr. Minnix struggled to make sense of what had happened in the bungalow. Real men don’t get raped, he told himself, they fight back. He found he was unable to concentrate on his work, and started to do poorly in radar school. He was desperate to get out of the Air Force. “I couldn’t stand being there,” said Mr. Minnix, who lives in Bend, Ore. “I didn’t feel I could report it to anyone. The best thing to do was run.” He sighed and added, “I’ve essentially been running for most of my life since then.”’ . 📷: @maryfcalvert .

Back in front of camera today for the first time in a while 🎥 I'm part of a small documentary produced by @skynews about whether rape is the "perfect crime" based on the small amount of perpetrators that face prosecution and how it is severally under reported. #malesurvivor #breakthesilence #raisingawareness #needforchange
It is so important to recognise that there are many men and boys who are survivors, and who have potentially not had the support that they need and deserve. Male survivors may well have different barriers to accessing support, and face different kinds of stigma around coming forward. ​. ​Our advocacy team works with survivors of all genders and ages. They support a growing number of male clients who have reported sexual violence and abuse to the Police, however the numbers remain much lower than the number of women we support. ​. ​We are aware that the numbers of survivors engaging with our service does not reflect the rates of sexual offending against men which occurs, so we want to find out if we can do anything differently to be more welcoming and better prepared for supporting you. ​We want to improve our services and improve access to criminal justice for male survivors. ​. We have created an entirely anonymous survey to ask male survivors about their experiences. Your answers will be used to improve service provision and access to justice for men and boys, which may include sharing our findings with our local commissioners, the police and other local services that provide support to male survivors. ​. ​Please do consider filling in the survey if you are a male survivor in the UK/who has engaged with the UK criminal justice system. We really appreciate your feedback and thoughts. Link in the bio - please do share widely! ​​. ​ #survivor #malesurvivor #metoo #mentoo #brighton #hove #sussex #uk #criminaljustice #survey #consent #CSA #SpeakOut #support

Morning beautiful people. When’s the last time you sat down I just wrote to yourself? You know working with it all the noise in your head on a price of paper?
