Domestic violence among LGBTQ+ populations: Better understanding for better intervention
Several studies show that domestic violence affects lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer and other sexually diverse and gender-diverse (LGBTQ+) populations just as much, if not more. While some manifestations of this violence are common to those reported by heterosexual populations, others are specific to LGBTQ+ populations, and the societal issues they face contribute to making their realities invisible. When they do seek help, people affected by domestic violence don’t necessarily do so for this reason, nor do they disclose their LGBTQ+ status. It is important to be aware of this issue, regardless of one’s field of practice, in order to develop an understanding of domestic violence among LGBTQ+ populations, with a view to continuously improving practices with this clientele.
