Anyone, regardless of gender identity, can be a victim of sexual violence. Men Only Tayside, understand how difficult it can be to discuss an experience of sexual violence with a support agency or even talk to family and friends about it, and that this time can be a traumatic time, where more support is required. Men Only Tayside (MOT) and Victim Support Scotland (VSS) are collaborating to offer individual, tailored support to men, including trans-men (anyone identifying as male) who have experienced recent sexual assault or rape.
