I'm in NYC, and I'm standing up with Logan to say it's time to make something happen. I will not stand idly by and let LA take the lead! (yes, philobat, I'm thinking of you!)

I know there must be some more of us here. After all, even if you're one in a million, in New York City that means there's 7 other people just like you. And I know there's more than 8 of us in this town.

So why don't we get this thing started, I'll ask Ken Singer how to go about this.

I think we'll also need like a head or lead therepist for the group.

It isn't necessary to have a therapist if what you want is a peer support group. Support groups are not group therapy, per se, but are centered around mutual support and experience. They are also free (as far as a fee goes).

Group therapy is something completely different. A therapist facilitates the group (opening the group with a focus, keeping the group on track, etc.) and usually charges a fee for each week. The hard part is finding a therapist who really understands the issues male survivors deal with. I've only found a handful in the SF Bay Area, and I would imagine the scarcity would be similar in NYC. Ken Singer might have a recommendation, however, if this is the route you choose to take.

I'm on Long Island (Suffolk); tough to get to NYC but I'm listening to what you can get organized.
