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.

when people call hannibal misunderstood i just imagine hannibal as socially confused, 90s sitcom character who gets into hijinks
like he trips on a skateboard and accidentally harvests a dude’s liver
and jack walks in with his hands on hips and he goes “hannibal" in that annoyed, sitcom-way
and hannibal is just on the floor feasting on this dude’s organs and he shrugs and sheepishly grins and says “did i do that?” and a laugh track plays
"I stood in front of the monitors watching 75 women stand in a circle, dancing and yelling while two women humped each other. Taylor Schilling, who plays Piper on the show, had hung around to watch the chaos. She leaned over to me during a take and said, “When have you ever seen this many women on screen together?” In that moment I realized we were doing something really special.” (x)
