Kevin Kantor donated his extraordinary poem “People You May Know” to Muruch.com’s RAINN benefit album. The poem gives an emotional account of Facebook’s attempt to connect Kantor to his rapist and gives voice to male sexual assault victims who face a particular kind of shame and pressure to stay silent. You can hear the song below and get all 25 mp3s of the album by donating $10 (or more) directly to RAINN through Muruch’s RAINN.org fundraising page.
