I’ve never been prouder to share my story.
Amy Oestreicher Addresses Trauma and Healing in Performance at New Horizons Fundraiser http://disq.us/t/376s7rn
In light of current events, it feels more appropriate than ever to speak, sing, and dance through how I realized I was sexually abused, and the long road it took to finally be able to verbalize it, especially in waking up from months in a coma, dealing with the exploding stomach and all of that not-so-fun not having a digestive system for years thing…
I was interviewed by Mother Jones regarding “Calls to the National Sexual Assault Hotline Spiked Last Weekend While More Kavanaugh News Broke” https://www.motherjones.com/
And Newsweek for “Donald Trump Still Doesn’t Understand Why Alleged Sexual Assault Victims May Be Reluctant to Report Attacks”
But last night was the biggest honor I could imagine, telling stories, in the hope that others may be tell their own someday…
Thank you so much to everyone to see the show at Wesleyan last night! What an honor to be an advocate for bringing the Stories of survivors forward. Thank you Adolescent Sexual Health Awareness (ASHA) and New Horizons Domestic Violence Services for all the extraordinary work that you do.
My one-woman musical, Gutless & Grateful came to Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut, as a fundraiser for New Horizons Domestic Violence Services, sponsored by Wesleyan’s Adolescent Sexual Health Awareness, October 6th at 7:30pm.
