Survivor Stories

This forum is a place where male survivors may tell their story. Individual stories are often raw and graphic, and can be triggering to some. All stories submitted must be approved, but are rarely edited. Survivors are encouraged to share only if they want to, at their own pace and at a level they feel comfortable. Threads are locked in this forum. Each story stands alone without comment - a safe space created by each survivor to share - and to have the last word.

Progress

This forum is for male survivors to make posts about areas where they are seeing progress in their recovery. Posts in this forum are locked after they are released by the moderator team so that the survivor's post stands alone as the milestone that it is. If you would like to offer support and encouragement to the poster, please send him a PM (private message). If you would like to discuss your accomplishment, please feel free to post on the DB. This is one case where duplicate postings on the DB are encouraged.

Documentary: Trans Survivors and Mental Health

Thie forum if for transmasculine survivors to contribute their thoughts for inclusion in the feature-length documentary, What Will I Become?

This forum was created in partnership with Lexie Bean (they/he) and Logan Rozos (he/him), two trans directors of an upcoming feature-length documentary, What Will I Become? The film will examine transness, masculinities, isolation, and cycles of abuse that make trans men and boys uniquely vulnerable to depression and suicidal ideation. We will pose questions and prompts to allow transmasculine+ survivors to offer their expertise in their own experiences, to add nuance to narratives around both trans masculinities and survivorship, and to explore how the internet functions as a creator of community.

Please note that anything shared on this forum may appear in the film, please contact Lexie or Logan at [email protected] if you change your mind about the inclusion of any of your words or thoughts!
