Every two years MS holds a conference, and as of last year we have a permanent venue at the John Jay School of Criminal Law in NYC. The conference lasts about 3 days and features talks, workshops, lectures, and presentations on all matters relating to male survivors. You register and then sign up for the things you want to participate in.
Last year I went to the conference and it was a fantastic experience. I participated in Mike Lew's workshop just before the conference and that was an amazing experience for me. I attended talks and workshops and learned a lot. I also met many other survivors and made many new friends. There was a performance of Marty Moran's play The Tricky Part, and that was great too.
You may feel a bit strange at first, seeing other survivors for the first time, and if you get to feeling really uncomfortable there's a Safe Room where you can go to calm down and talk to a counselor if you need to. But you will also see guys from the site there and I know you'll find a lot of support and encouragement. If it's at all possible for you to go I would definitely do it.
