“I was working on a project to create a documentary, and so I went to my friend from high school’s house to work on it. The next thing I knew, he had me pinned on the bed, and I could feel his body heat as he pressed himself against me. Luckily, I was able to push him off and hurt him. But I didn’t tell anyone because it still disturbs me to this day. He was my friend, and I trusted him. And he took advantage of that.”
