Discussion: Domestic Violence Awareness in LGBTQ+ Relationships and Community, Oct. 16
Conversations on Diversity and Inclusion
Domestic Violence Awareness in LGBTQ+ Relationships and Community
12:00 – 1:00 pm in BMU 210
Shame and guilt are common feelings for individuals who experience abuse within an intimate relationship, causing them to hide the abuse from friends and family. For people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans*, or queer (LGBTQ+) sharing about the abuse can be even more challenging, as they may not be “out” or may feel that their relationship will not be validated. This conversation will help to shed light on difficulties faced by LGBTQ+ victims of intimate partner violence and ways to be supportive.
Facilitated by Melody Proebstel, Catalyst
