I know the next conference will be held at the John Jay school in NYC again, but do we have dates yet? Many of us have to plan at least a year ahead for such things, so information on this would be helpful. Thanks.

Gregg,

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.

Much love,
Larry

Sounds like it would be good. I have never been to NYC so that would be fun too. I will wait for the dates.

Thanks

How 'international' is it if it is permanently in New York?

Good call AK. ;-)

Maybe we should look to hold one in Moscow! I'd love to get back there for another visit. Last time I was there was 94.

The idea is that participation is from everywhere, Andrei. The venue is NYC because the John Jay School of Criminal Law supports us there and gives us rooms where we can meet. It's pretty good overall, and the conference itself is great. I am still processing some of the things I learned last fall.

Much love,
Larry

I am sorry for my misunderstanding of it. Embarassment complete.
