LGBT Counseling

1 in 4 lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people experience relationship violence.

Although abuse is often similar in LGBT and heterosexual relationships, perpetrators of relationship violence in LGBT relationships may also use society’s bias against their partner’s sexual orientation or gender identity to isolate and abuse. These tactics may include:

  • Threatening to out or outing the partner’s sexual orientation or gender identity to their family, employer or community
  • Threatening to tell or telling others the partner’s HIV/AIDS status
  • Reinforcing fears that no one will help because of sexual orientation or gender identity

The Family Place - LGBT Services

How do you know if you are being abused? Here are some questions to ask yourself:

  1. When you are with your partner, do you sometimes feel unsafe?
  2. Do you have to watch what you do and say?
  3. Does your relationship swing from really great to really problematic without ever being just OK?
  4. Has your partner ever:
    • Told you where to go, what not to say or what to wear?
    • Tried to control how and when you spend money?
    • Gotten in the way of your medical care?
    • Told you not to hang out with certain people?
    • Threatened you physically?
    • Pushed, hit or held you down?
    • Threatened to out you to anyone?
    • Refused to have safer sex or forced you to have sex against your will?
    • Threatened to report you to an authority, such as immigration?

If you answered yes to some or all of these questions, you may be experiencing relationship violence.
