RSG Real Stories Gallery Foundation

 

Real Stories Gallery Foundation, a charity founded in 2010, employs the arts & storytelling to bring greater awareness of all forms of sexual violence being endured by pediatric, adolescent and adult males in distinct localities around the world.  The work reveals the challenges male survivors they face, and spotlights the pioneering medical, psychosocial and support services that serve their best interests.

RSG Early Intervention

When sexually exploited pediatric and adolescent males have access to safe houses to grow up in, it is easier for a survivor to access appropriate & consistent medical care and support, and to explore whether he would like to adhere to and find ways to cope with powerful medical regimes that he will have to take for the rest of his life. Currently there is no cure for the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). Controlling and treating HIV and Auto Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) defining infections, diseases and cancers can be a spectacularly traumatic experience for pediatric and adolescent patients who do not have a safe & supportive house to live in.

When a young male survivor has access to survivor-led and peer-mentored art program, it feels safer for him to share his story, find the energy to explore who he is and the will to visualize and reach for who he would like to be. Art & poetry and storytelling are significant tools for young male survivors.
