Time: 5:00 am – 6:30 am ChST

As domestic violence programs across the country grapple with how to meaningfully support survivors of all genders, there are important questions that inevitably emerge. What is different about male survivors of domestic violence from other survivors and what do we attribute that difference to? What is the impact of patriarchy and toxic masculinity on relationships? How do we maintain and strengthen a collective feminist analysis on gender, power, and violence as we grapple with these questions?
 
LGBTQ culturally specific programs have a long history of supporting bisexual men, transgender men, and gay men who have survived domestic violence. Join us on this webinar, as we explore the questions above, share our approach to meaningfully supporting male survivors by centering the experiences of bi+, trans, and gay men, and share tips and best practices in providing advocacy.
