Tessa Torrence Neumann

Tessa Neumann—the 29-year-old stepdaughter of BoDeans’ front man Kurt Neumann — survived both physical and verbal sexual trauma at a very young age by an international Rock Star who denies the allegations and has not been charged with a crime. Tessa Neumann experienced aggressive push back when initially coming out about her truth in 2018. She states, “Someone came into my life and took my childhood and my innocence, and it really messes with your head.” #ibelievetessa
From this Host


Strong takes an in-depth, insider’s view of the #metoo movement and systemic misogyny, dehumanization and sexual exploitation, particularly prevalent in the entertainment industry but present in all communities and across all walks of life. We celebrate the strength, resilience, compassion, love, and community that is required to overcome adversity and navigate the complexities of an exploitative society. Hosted by Barbra Neumann and Tessa Torrence Neumann.
