If you are gay, bisexual or transgender, you might also be experiencing domestic violence if you are in a relationship with someone who:


  • Will tell you that authorities don’t help gay, bisexual or transgender people

  • Will tell you that leaving the relationship means you are admitting that gay, bisexual or transgender relationships are deviant

  • Justifies the abuse by telling you that you're not "really" gay, bisexual or transgender

  • Says that some men are naturally violent
