Up to 62% of LGBTQ+ people have experienced abuse in one or more of their relationships. Despite these alarming figures, LGBTQ+ people are less likely to identify the abuse, less likely to find support and even less likely to report it. There is significant apprehension to reach out for support or contact mainstream services. We need to change that.
Silence and lack of awareness about domestic, family and intimate partner abuse in LGBTIQ+ communities play a large part in why the violence persists.
By signing this, you pledge to do your part to help change the national conversation around domestic, family and intimate partner violence and abuse.
