Patrick Dati is an advocate for all victims of abuse: domestic, sexual, and gender preference. Patrick is an advocate because he cares. At age nine, his life was changed forever. He was raped by serial killer John Wayne Gacy. He cares about anyone who was sexually abused as a kid. He knows firsthand the mental and physical trauma victims live with. He cares about anyone who was bullied in a domestic relationship. Patrick cares about anyone who had to hide because of sexual preference. His advocacy is dedicated to helping victims stop hiding and to become the person they are intended to be so each of them can say “I AM ME”. His message is simple: “together we can overcome the hiding and shame caused by abuse and bullying.” 

Patrick is associated with se
veral organizations devoted to promoting the rights for victims of domestic abuse and the advancement of LGBTQ rights. These organizations include Chicago’s Center on Halsted; New York City Anti­Violence Project; MaleSurvivor; Teach Antibullying Inc; Dream Catchers for Abused Children; The National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse; and RAINN. In 2011, Dati was selected by SAMHA/US Department of Health and Human Services to participate in their 2012 trauma survivor campaign. In 2014 Dati’s book “I AM ME” was published.

Dati’s book “I AM ME” was published in 2014.  It chronicles his life of abuse commencing with the rape by John Wayne Gacy as a nine year old  KIRKUS describes “I AM ME” as a “riveting, heart-wrenching chronicle of one man’s journey from victim to survivor.” It is an intense story that could empower other survivors.
