What About The Boys?

Nick

When filming for TRICKED began four years ago, few of us knew what to expect. Research material was limited and awareness of sex trafficking in the US was minimal to say the least. Since then, considerable progress has been made. Public interest has grown, federal and state legislation around trafficking and underage prostitution has improved, law enforecement officials are better prepared to help prostitutes or suspected victims of trafficking and service providers for trafficking victims have received more funding for research and development. Sadly however, not all trafficking victims have felt the effects of this progress. As awareness grows around the commercial sexual exploitation of girls, we ask but what about our boys? Young men are also forced to work in the sex industry and they do so in the shadows.

Meet Nikolas, the subject of 3 Generations' latest short film, What About the Boys.

Nikolaos was 17 when his father kicked him out of home for being gay. Within hours he was drugged, sexually abused and being sold for sex by his first pimp. Other pimps followed and kept him under their control with drugs and threats of death. Five years later, after the murder of one of his friends by her pimp, Nick finally broke free. Today he is studying to be a therapist and hopes to raise awareness and funds to start an exit program for young gay men forced to work in the sex industry.

Through one frank and gritty testimony, What About the Boys dispels some of the common myths about gay prostitution and offers a heart-wrenching look at how one young American boy was brutalized almost to the point of insanity.

Expanding Our Vision

What, to you, does a world without atrocity look like?

This is the question 3 Generations has been posing to global leaders, thinkers and artists for the past several years. In the last couple months, we were able to conduct interviews with two incredibly inspiring individuals. The first, Lama Fakih, is the Syria and Lebanon researcher at Human Rights Watch. Her interview was filmed in conjunction with our latest project- Three and can be viewed here. The second interviewee, Bill Joy, co-founded Sun Microsystems in 1982 and served as its chief scientist until 2003. Today, however, Joy is a Partner Emeritus at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers where he works to fund and support innovative and sustainable technologies that address the issue of climate change. Check out his interview here.

As always, we thank you for your continued support of our work. So much of what we do depends on people like you. Please consider helping us continue the End of Atrocity project by donating today.

Good Things Come in Threes!

We've all heard the old adage that bad things happen in threes but can't good things happen in threes as well? We think so!

  1. It's complete!!! We're thrilled to announce the latest addition to 3G's film repertoire - Three
  2. Three's trailer has garnered hundreds of views all around the world! If you haven't seen it already, watch the trailer here.
  3. Three is already beginning to receive press! On Tuesday, Jane and Elizabeth were invited onto Huffington Post Live to discuss the film. Check out the segment here.
