Same sex domestic violence

Violence can also occur in lesbian and gay relationships

What can make getting help more difficult is anti lesbian and anti gay attitudes within services and society resulting in diminished support and fewer services. Lesbians and/or gay men may feel that they will not be believed and the abuse minimised and not taken seriously. Your partner may threaten to 'out' you to friends and family as a means of controlling you and try to prevent you from seeking help.
