Grace Brown has photographed hundreds of survivors and received submissions from thousands more since starting Project Unbreakable in October 2011. Her images document the threatening, demeaning and downright misguided comments that sexual abusers use to torment and subdue their victims.
Some pictures capture a particularly haunting aspect of sexual victimization: so-called “corrective rape,” a hate crime used against LGBT people as punishment or in the belief that forcing them to have heterosexual sex will “cure” them of their homosexuality.

On March 28th 2014, one of my best friends took her own life. Her name is Jordan Howe and she was a transgender female. This is a drawing that Jordan drew which I think perfectly depicts the daily struggles that the transgender community has to face. Jordan was an amazing human being and I really really feel like this drawing should go viral to raise awareness and to educate the world on transgender people. It is NOT ok to discriminate, it is NOT ok to make them feel like less of a girl/ boy because of the body they were born in and it is NOT ok to let ignorant people get away with all of this unnecessary transphobia and downright abusive behaviour. I would really love if each and every one of my followers could reblog this to spread awareness. It’s unfortunate that my perfect, talented and beautiful friend had to leave us the way she did but I can only hope that her love and wisdom and music and art lives on and furthermore helps and encourages other people to see that this is happening daily and it can be stopped. RIP Jordan Howe you are going to change the world xxx
