The right to live a life free from violence and abuse is a person’s most basic human right, but for many LGBTQ people, this is not a reality. One in two LGBTQ people will experience domestic, family, and intimate partner violence and abuse (DV) in their lifetime, yet victims remain largely invisible with incredibly low levels of reporting.
The LGBTQ Domestic Violence Awareness Day aims to:
- Shine a light on the prevalence of DV in LGBTQ communities and make the invisible victims, visible
- Let LGBTQ victims and survivors know they are #SeenAndBelieved and there are people out there who will support them
- Advocate for and support the empowerment of LGBTQ victims and survivors of DV
- Recognise LGBTQ survivors and give hope and courage to those currently experiencing DV
Thank you for joining us to help raise awareness of this insidious issue across the globe and ensuring all victims and survivors are #SeenAndBelieved.
