Singer Luke La Volpe and fans back the campaign
One of Scotland’s rising music acts is the latest guy to support the campaign.
Singer-songwriter Luke La Volpe is encouraging men who might be worried about how a friend behaves towards women to find the right time to have a one-on-one conversation with them.
In a video shot recently at his headline concert at Glasgow venue SWG3, Luke said:
“As a performer, I want everyone who comes to my gigs to have a good time and enjoy themselves without getting any hassle.
“We all know the way some guys can act when they’re out can make women feel uncomfortable and that’s not on, in any space.
“All women should be able to go about their daily lives without being harassed or assaulted and it’s up to men to make this happen.
“Having a quiet word with one of your mates who goes a bit too far, can stop sexual offending before it starts.
“Don’t be that guy that says nothing.”
