I was groped at the first concert I went to when I was 16. I was with my best friend, and we were at a small venue in London seeing Three Days Grace (an old rock band that i like) and I kept feeling something against my bum. Until I realised it was someone’s hand and someone was grabbing me. It was actually really painful, and whenever I turned around I couldn’t pick out who it was because there was a huge group of 18 or 19 year old men. The worst thing about the whole thing is that I felt like it was a compliment and I was half grateful for the attention. I got home and I Googled what had happened to me and I realised it was assault. I told my best friend and she said “its ok, it happens to everyone”.
