This Spring, DJ + Producer Zeke Thomas, son of basketball legend Isiah Thomas, came forward as a victim of rape during sexual assault awareness month. He was the first man to come forward publicly as a male victim of rape. Thomas came out in a major way: on Good Morning America with Robin Roberts and served as the first male ambassador for the National Sexual Violence Resource Center.(NSVRC) The musician said that he does feel an added pressure as a man. "I 100 percent feel the weight of being a male, out front in rape and sexual assault who shared his story," he said of his role with NSVRC. "I feel the weight of that impact. The statistic of one in six men have been raped is a staggering number, and it's even worse for females. This is an issue in our country that we need to address properly."
