LGBT people can and do experience domestic abuse and hate crime within their own home. It can occur between current or former intimate partners, the family and anyone you share your home with including housemates or a landlord. It can take the form of any kind of threatening behaviour, violence, or abuse. This includes forced marriage, abuse relating to gender identity or sexuality and so-called honour based violence. For more information on domestic abuse see the section on the website about the Domestic Abuse Partnership (DAP).
