Domestic violence against men has been around for centuries but has largely been a hidden issue. Call it domestic violence or call it domestic abuse - it isn't just women who are victims, there are abused men too. Male victims of domestic violence are increasingly speaking out and looking for support. There are numerous support services for them.
Domestic abuse in the lesbian, bisexual, gay and transgender community is a serious issue. About 25% of LGBT people suffer through violent or threatening relationships with partners or ex-partners which is about the same rates as in as domestic abuse against heterosexual women. As in opposite-gendered couples, the problem is under reported. Those involved in same-gender abuse are often afraid of revealing their sexual orientation or the nature of their relationship.
Our service is available to all irrespective of sexual orientation.
