Welcome to the Male Survivor site! I'm glad you found us and I hope you benefit from all the many things that are going on here. It's a great bunch of people we have here, and they will show you a lot of understanding and support.
On your question, different guys will give you different answers depending on their own circumstances and feelings. I have always had female therapists, for example; I have always doubted I would do well with a male therapist, but probably that was due to how I was reacting to my feelings of shame and guilt. But other guys will say that for exactly the same reasons they needed to see a man rather than a woman.
It really comes down to who you think you will feel comfortable with. Making real progress in therapy will mean you need to be open and honest with your T; you have to trust the T and your first sessions will probably be about trust-building. Try to think of some of the most difficult things you need to talk about, imagine how it would feel telling those things to a man or a woman, and then decide accordingly.
And remember that you can always change your mind if your first option doesn't work out. If you are seeing a male therapist, for example, and discover that you just can't talk to another man about these things, then he will absolutely understand (or should understand) if you need to switch to a woman.
