"Hehehe, why thank you Doctor!”
"Oh by all means, Peter."
"Oh it was my honor, Peter!"

This is what a REAL rape prevention campaign looks like
All the awards.
DO ME A HUGE FAVOR AND REBLOG THIS!
This is perfection in a campaign
I love how they included a situation where a guy could’ve gotten raped. People don’t seem to realize that males get raped too. It’s less common, but it happens. That is what sets this campaign apart from others.
“Hey man, take my picture!”
“I can’t do it. It’s too dark.”
“Yeah, we need some light. Let’s go over there.”
“Are you homeless?”
“Yes, I am.”
“How long have you been homeless?”
“15 years. I’ve been in Boston 8 months. Before that I was in Washington, Virginia, New York, Philadelphia, Louisiana, Florida…”
“Why didn’t you stay in Florida? It’s so much warmer.”
“I wanted to see my family. But they don’t want to see me. They don’t understand depression. They treat me like dirt. Homeless people treat me better than my family.”
“And what happened 15 years ago? How did you end up on the streets?”
“I tried to burn myself twice. I had 30 surgeries. I was dead two times, but God brought me back. I don’t know why.”
“And why did you do it?”
“I was depressed. Why you crying?”
“Because you are a beautiful person, and my family is really messed up, and I’ve been very depressed. I think I can understand you.”
“Yes, I am a good person. And when you take people’s pictures, don’t disrespect them.”
“No, man, I won’t. I like people. That’s why I take their pictures.”
“And when you make your portfolio, don’t denigrate people. Let the pictures speak for themselves.”
“I will. Are you safe on the streets?”
“Yes, I am…And now I have $8 to buy me some food.”
“That’s all I have. Next time I see you, I will give you more.”
“No, man. It ain’t all about money. Give me a hug. And next time you see me, give me a hug again. And thanks for taking my picture.”
RIP Lynda Bellingham OBE.
Some people might have known her as the OXO mum or from the TV show loose women, but she also had an amazing Doctor Who role as ‘The Inquisitor’ in ‘The Trial of a Timelord’ alongside Colin Baker.
She was diagnosed with colon cancer in July last year and had undergone chemotherapy, but the cancer spread to her lungs & liver. She decided to stop the treatment to save her family more suffering & so that she could ‘go out on a high’ and not as a frail old lady.
She died in her Husband’s arms.
She lived her life right up to the end, recording a ‘Loose Woman’ tribute a few days ago, which will be broadcast on wednesday on ITV.
