Why Harish?

Harish Iyer is the first survivor of male child sexual abuse in India to speak about his experiences openly on national television without a mask. Eventually the experiences of male survivors of child sexual abuse that were shared helped in framing a gender neutral law called POCSO in India.

Harish is the only indian national listed in the british daily Guardian’s list of 100 most influential LGBT persons in the world. This list includes Ellen De Generes, Stephen Fry, Ricky Martin, Elton John amongst others.

Harish uses his voice and his reach to raise awareness by interacting one-on-one and also by speaking about how one could use their vulnerability as strength and not weakness. Under the banner of his organisation, The Jimmy Foundation, Harish has reached out to over 7 lakh survivors of different forms of abuse.
