In discussing the sexual abuse allegations against Georgia Bishop Eddie Long, Don Lemon shattered the silence of sexual violence by disclosing that he was a victim of a pedophile.

“I have never admitted this on television,” Lemon said. “I am a victim of a pedophile when I was a kid. Someone who was much older than me.”

Later in the segment he added, “I have never admitted that on television. I didn’t tell my mom that until I was 30 years old.”

Thank you Don for using your voice! Sexual violence affects both men and women…and we must be the voice for all who have been silenced by violence!
