Every story has a beginning. Every causes a catalyst.
Mine was an emotional and mental implosion at the age of 45. When I had total recall of the sexual abuse, I had suffered from around 4-16 by both my parents and their friends. I talk about this on the No Working Title book site.
When I started to try and find someone to talk to, I couldn’t. All the support groups were for women only. Therapists and church groups in my area only wanted to talk to women or hold groups for women. My favourite was, “You are a stalker, men don’t get abused, you’re here to try and get laid”.
Give Them A Voice Foundation gives a voice to all those that don’t have one. Our work is inclusive; our emphasis is discussing the sexual abuse and trafficking of boys and men.
GTAVF focus is helping law enforcement, health care workers, educators and community with identify victims and perpetrators. Our partnership with the multi-award winning documentary, Stopping Traffic brings an unparalleled insight into the topic.
