Survivors: Male survivors of sexual abuse

Héctor Adolfo Quintanar Pérez | Veracruz, Mexico

This work presents through images the story of resilience and survival of men who suffered sexual abuse of some kind during their childhood. In different scenarios, times and spaces, these men narrate how they have been able to survive a world that turned its back on them, forcing them to live on many occasions in a silence that caused wounds that have not yet healed or that have taken a long time to close. With stories that occurred from the 60's to the beginning of the year 2000, with his story we can confirm that in Mexico children are also prey to predators and a system that does not take children into account when prosecuting justice and where, for reasons of a cultural nature, families seem to prefer to hide and silence their children who were victims. In this story, we aim to break that silence and try to seek justice.
