The LGBTQ Community faces additional barriers to coming forward when they experience domestic or sexual

violence than  cicgender

individuals including:


-Threats to "out" the person

to coworkers, friends,

family, etc.  

-Use of LGBT stereotypes

to maintain or gain power

and control. 

-Withholding access to

hormones, doctor

appointments, and


-Isolation from the LGBTQ


-Claiming that no one will help

because they are LGBTQ.

-Threats to disclose HIV status to others.  

Do Not Let These Barriers Keep You Locked in Danger. There are resources and help available to the LGBTQ community locally and nationally.
