General Material

Published Date
June, 2021

Lesbian, gay, bi, trans, and queer (LGBTQ) people experience domestic violence at the same or higher rates than heterosexual cisgender people. The isolating nature of domestic violence can be particularly harmful for LGBTQ people due to the ongoing and intersecting impacts of homophobia, transphobia, and racism. This research report shares common stories and experiences of over 574 LGBTQ survivors at non-LGBTQ and LGBTQ-specific organizations.
