The Purple Of The Rainbow: Domestic Violence In LGBTQ Relationships
"The truth is, research suggests that domestic violence impacts LGBTQ individuals at rates equal to or higher than those of cisgender heterosexual women (25-35 ...percent). Despite these numbers, the majority of individuals seeking services appear to be cisgender, heterosexual women. For those working in the field of violence prevention, this will come as no surprise. There are many barriers that prevent individuals from seeking services and even more when they identify with a traditionally marginalized gender identity and/or sexual orientation."
