Provide your audience with a perspective they won’t normally get from the all too familiar, superficial or sensationalistic reporting based on tired and unrealistic caricatures. Talk to people with first-hand experience–real people who are attracted to minors, and mental health professionals who know them. We can provide contacts for interviews, as well as opportunities to hear new viewpoints at our ground-breaking workshops.
For example, one of our volunteer staff, an MAP, allowed himself to be interviewed and followed for a week by a documentary film-maker and human rights attorney who was making a documentary focusing on the day-to-day lives of MAPs. The work is expected to be finished in late 2015 and pitched to major cable networks.
We’ve also provided interviews for the following stories:
- Luke Malone, Matter, You’re 16. You’re a Pedophile. You Don’t Want to Hurt Anyone. What Do You Do Now? August 11, 2014
- CBC Radio’s Ideas with Paul Kennedy, Born That Way? May 1, 2014
- Alan Zarembo, Los Angeles Times, Many researchers taking a different view of pedophilia January 14, 2013
- Jennifer Bleyer, Slate, How Can We Stop Pedophiles? Stop treating them like monsters September 24, 2012
