Your street harassment stories: “…I felt pinned between him and the wall of the building…”

29 Jun

6/24/12, Broadway and Stone, Tucson AZ:

“I was walking back to my car from an event at the TCC when a man started to walk next to me down Stone toward Broadway.  At first he just said hi and asked what I was doing downtown, but then his conversation switched to me performing sexual acts on him.  When I told him to back off he got confrontational and started calling me obscene names.  He positioned himself closer to me as we walked and I felt pinned between him and the wall of the building I was walking past.  I picked up my pace and quickly crossed the street before him to create space between us.  As I continued to walk away, I could hear him yelling out to me.”

– Queer-identified female, 30.
