BTAI stands for Boys Talk About It. It is an annual project undergone to create societal awareness of the realities of Boy-Child Sexual Abuse. The stories you will be reading are anonymously shared with us by real people, detailing real experiences.

PS: The majority of the stories shared here are by men who were abused as minors. Some of these men are now fathers. We will appreciate your showing sensitivity and empathy in the case of commentary. Thanks.

A close male family friend assaulted me. It went on for 3 or 4 years with intervals. I have only spoken of this to my Pastor who prayed for me.

Since then I have a lot of physical pain. I suffer from depression, lack of mental growth, lots of self-esteem issues, mood swings, violent behaviour, irritability etc.
