Statement: CDC Releases Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Data for Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual People Demonstrating Similar or Higher Rates of Prevalence to Heterosexual People from the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs, 1/25/13

Friday, January 25, 2013

‘This report is historic in that for the first time the federal government is measuring the prevalence of intimate partner and sexual violence experienced by lesbian, gay and bisexual communities and found that the prevalence was similar to, and in some cases higher than, heterosexual communities,’ said Sharon Stapel, Executive Director of the New York City Anti-Violence Project. ‘The report is a good step forward but is limited in scope as it omits data on transgender and gender non-conforming people. In its recommendations for more services, research and prevention for lesbian, gay and bisexual people, the CDC focused on the need to explicitly include transgender and gender non-conforming people in future studies.'”
