Our protest out side the British Medical Association’s annual representatives meeting in Belfast. Interactions with the delegates was for the most part friendly and supportive; most of the delegates who don’t share the views of MDC just walk past and don’t engage.
Men Do Complain has been contacted by Burning Bright Productions
to recruit participants for a television documentary that will cover issues around circumcision.
Earlier this year, Burning Bright produced 100 Vaginas, a programme that explored women’s experience with their bodies, and included a sequence on FGM.
Now Burning Bright are looking to present the male experience in a new programme. This is an opportunity for our voices to be heard.
If you think you might like to be involved in the project, see below for details.
Channel 4 are looking for contributors for a ground-breaking and intimate film about men, their bodies and life experiences.
We are working with an artist to document the relationship men have with their most private parts and masculinity.
If you are happy to be interviewed and intimately photographed as part of this programme, we’d love to hear from you.

For too long people have been obliged to keep silent about male genital cutting because of the attitude of society. This series of podcasts aims to break that silence.
We would like to hear from men, women, mothers, fathers and anyone concerned with the rights of children regarding non-therapeutic genital modification. Ideally you will be based in the U.K. so that we can record you directly in front of a microphone. To take part contact M.D.C. using our contact form or write to – firstname.lastname@example.org
Genital Autonomy has organised a workshop day “Understanding the psychological harm of male circumcision” for therapists at Keele University, Staffs, 16 January 2018.
The workshop at Keele aims to increase therapists’ understanding of the genuine psychological problems that can follow non-therapeutic male circumcision.
Men with physical problems as a result of non-therapeutic circumcision such as skin tags, bridges, narrowed meatus (narrow pee hole) or a bent or twisted penis are cared for by the medical profession.
Men who have psychological problems as a result of non-therapeutic circumcision, and report them, are often dissmissed being told something like “It can’t be that, it is something else that’s wrong with you”.
