I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

GAY DOMESTIC VIOLENCE STUDY SHOWS BLACK COUPLES CONTINUE TO BE MOST ABUSIVE

It’s time to get serious guys! We make up 77% of homicides?

The annual ‘Report on Intimate Partner Violence in Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and HIV-Affected Communities in the U.S.’ examines the experiences of 1,976 survivors of intimate partner violence (IPV) who reported to 17 National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs member organizations from 14 states across the country.

Victims under age 24 are most likely to be experience sexual violence and 64% of all incidents reported were between the ages of 19 and 39 years old.

Other key Findings include:

– People of color made up 77% of the reports of LGBTQ and HIV-affected IPV homicides, and 54% of the total number of survivors who reported to NCAVP members in 2015.

– People of color made up 10 (77%) of the 13 reports of LGBTQ and HIV-affected IPV homicides.

– Nearly one in three LGBTQ IPV survivors who interacted w/ police were arrested. Police accountability is an LGBTQ & IPV issue.

– This year, 44% of LGBTQ survivors seeking shelter were denied it. 71% said it was for reasons related to gender identity.

– Transgender women were 3x’s more likely to report experiencing sexual violence & financial abuse w/in intimate partner violence.

-Sometimes IPV isn’t physical. LGBTQ survivors reported financial control, verbal harassment & isolation as tactics of abuse.

– LGBTQ survivors with disabilities were two times more likely to be isolated by their abusive partner and four
times more likely to experience financial violence.
