LGBTQ+ Domestic and Family Violence

Although data is limited, available evidence indicates that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ+) people are just as likely as women in the general population (non-LGBTQ+) to experience domestic and/or family violence (DFV), that’s about 1 in 3 who have experienced it in a past or present relationship.

Despite the prevalence of DFV for LGBTQ+ people, our communities are less likely to find support services that meet our specific needs, we are less likely to identify the occurrence of DFV in our relationships and less likely to report it to the police or to seek support from services.

The chances are that you or someone you know is, or has been, in an abusive relationship.

Throughout this site we refer to LGBTQ+ people, standing for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer, or in other words, people of diverse genders and sexualities. We understand that this acronym will not and cannot suit everyone and every diverse identity. For information about intersex people please see our About Us page.

 

At The Front Door

At The Front Door is a mini-documentary, filmed in 2021, that meets people in different relationships from LGBTQ+ communities in NSW. We learn what is unique about our relationships, what challenges we face together and how we overcome them through pride, strength and love.

Think your relationship could be better?

In LGBTQ+ communities, there can be less pressure to have relationships based on more traditional models. As a result, our relationships come in all looks, forms, sizes and configurations.

However, there are healthy traits which are important to all relationships, regardless of how they appear on the surface. Those traits include trust, feeling secure, consent, communication and respect.

If you’re already in a good relationship, but think there is room for growth, check out our tried and true tips for a rock solid relationship!
