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
