Ray Barry interviewed about being a father unable to see his children on Father’s Day

Ray Barry is the leader of Real Fathers for Justice and also supports fathers (and occasionally mothers) seeking to restore contact with their children following relationship breakdowns, through Court Without a Lawyer.

When Ray’s children were young – not yet 10 – his ex-wife had an extramarital affair and alienated the children against him. They’re now in their 20s and, sadly, Ray still has no contact with them.

Tomorrow is Father’s Day, and we were pleased to learn that Ray was interviewed a couple of days ago on BBC Radio WM, explaining what it feels like to be a father unable to see his children on that important day. The file has just been posted onto our YouTube channel by the man behind the ‘ManWomanMyth’ and ‘Humanity Bites’ channels, who kindly manages our channel. The programme was simultaneously broadcast on BBC Radio Coventry & Warwickshire, and BBC Radio Hereford & Worcester. It’s a moving interview, and we commend Graham Torrington for his sensitive handling of an emotive subject, and for giving Ray the time to say what he wanted to.

Ray will be the J4MB candidate for Wolverhampton South-West in the May 2015 general election.

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

  • Yes it was good to hear an interviewer let someone tell their story without smart commentary or interruptions. And well done, Ray, for being so honest and clear. I sincerely hope your hopes are realised soon.
