Responding to Domestic Violence in LGBTIQ communities

Break Out Session Round #1


LGBTQ victims of DV do not currently receive the support they need, creating an increased risk to a group already more likely to experience DV in their lifetime than the general population.  

Learn about how DV occurs in all relationships and hear a personal story of survival from an abusive relationship. Learn about the unique methods of power and control used in LGBTQ relationships and the barriers LGBTQ people experience when reporting abuse or seeking support.  Discover why we must work together as a community to challenge our beliefs about DV and ensure that there are no more invisible victims in the future.
