SlutWalk NYCPosted: October 3, 2011

On Saturday, thousands of people stood in solidarity with victims of sexual assault and rape in a SlutWalk march and rally in Union Square (read more about SlutWalk here). It was an incredible rally and I was amazed to see such a large and enthusiastic turnout. Especially given the recent assaults in Brooklyn (scarily close to where I live), it is reassuring to see so many people fighting for this cause and bringing attention to an often minimized and swept-under-the-rug issue. Just to make the day even more amazing, my new band, Claire’s Diary, had the honor of playing its first ever show at the rally!
