Q. I’m a male survivor. Can I still submit a story?
A: YES, absolutely. Male survivors of sexual violence face many obstacles to reporting/sharing their stories; obstacles such as safety or privacy concerns or self-blame/shame/issues around sexual identity, etc. Men are survivors of sexual violence, too, and account for about 10% of sexual assault survivors.
Q: I know you’re getting a lot of submissions, but I still want to share my story. But I don’t want to add to your pile, and I’m not even sure my story matters that much.
A: While I do have a large backlog of submissions, I read ALL of them and will eventually post ALL of them! Yours may not go up on the site right away, but if you’ve emailed it to me or submitted it through the Google doc, I have seen it and will absolutely post it at some point. Every story matters, including yours.
Feel free to email with any other questions! Your story matters.
