LGBTI experiences of violence

  • Supporting people who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) requires an in-depth understanding of the issues they experience
  • Heterosexim, homophobia, transphobia and cisgenderism can affect the way people respond to sexual assault, domestic and family violence

National Sexual Assault, Domestic Family Violence Counselling Service. Supporting people who identify as LGBTIQ.

The initials LGBTI stand for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex. You might also see it written as LGBTIQ, where the Q stands for 'queer'. All of the content on the 1800RESPECT website is written to be inclusive of all people. However, we know that for some people there can be specific needs or extra barriers around accessing support. This content looks at the issues faced by people who identify as LGBTI who are impacted by sexual, domestic and family violence.

Violence against people who identify as LGBTI includes a range of behaviours. Sexual assault, domestic and family violence and controlling behaviour based on sexuality, gender or identity, are all part of the picture. Heterosexim, homophobia, transphobia and cisgenderism play a powerful role in shaping the way we think about and respond to sexual assault, domestic and family violence.
