Sexual violence. Over the past half decade, it’s something I’ve encountered, namely through the stories of others who’ve entrusted their experiences with me— both survivors and secondhand survivors alike. As an advocate for healthy relationships, a peer educator and friend, to have someone disclose their assault has not been uncommon.
Guest blogger Matt Scott, and advocate against sexual violence (and long time supporter of Superbands), speaks out about how music helped a friend struggling through difficult times and his own interpretation of the meaning behind '(super) bands save fans'.
"I created Superbands as a means of creating the community that I once longed for as a teen, struggling to figure out who I was. Concerts were the only place where I truly felt happiness. Why did I feel so at home in these dark venues, surrounded by these complete strangers? It was because we were united, connected by the music."
