Violence and abuse in LGBTQ relationships is common. But it's harder to spot.
- However, violence occurs in the LGBTQ community at about the same rate as among heterosexual individuals, according to a 2010 study from the Centers for Disease Control. “My No. 1 concern is that people don’t recognize that it’s happening all around them,” says Adam M. Messinger, an assistant professor at Northeastern Illinois University and author of “LGBTQ Intimate Partner Violence: Lessons for Policy, Practice and Research.” “Silence on the issue I just don’t think is an option.” Compared to people of all orientations, bisexual women are 60 percent more likely to enter an abusive relationship.
