Domestic abuse is a problem in the lesbian, bisexual and trans women’s community – it happens just as regularly as in heterosexual relationships. But we aren’t talking about it with each other – there is a taboo that surrounds the issue, and that makes it really hard for members of our community to get the help they need.
We can all help to end this taboo, and make it easier for us to support each other and get help when we need it. We just need to talk to each other, and acknowledge that domestic abuse happens in our communities too.
