LGBTQ

And it shouldn’t hurt.

Many believe that domestic violence is only an issue that happens in straight relationships. However, statistics show that abuse happens at a similar (if not higher) rate in LGBTQ relationships as it does in straight relationships. 

Violence within LGBTQ relationships is severely under reported. Though, the dynamics of abuse remain the same, following the same abusive cycle as any other violent relationship, LGBTQ victims may face added layers of threats and abuse. This can be especially true if they are not in an “out” relationship. 

Additional concerns may include:

  • The abuser withholding a victim’s hormones
  •  The abuser threatening to “out” the victim
  •  Limited access to, or lack of, LGBTQ centered programs
  • The abuser questioning the victim’s sexuality
