Are you LGBTQ and in an abusive and/or controlling relationship?

Does your partner:

  • Use physical violence such as kicking, biting, pushing?
  • Threaten to “out” you?
  • Humiliate you about your sexuality or question it?
  • Accuse you of “mutual” abuse?
  • Intimidate you from seeking help because you’re LGBTQ?
  • Isolate you from friends and family, especially those that are non-supportive?
  • Threaten to harm you or them self if you try to leave?

If you answer "yes" to any of the questions listed above, you may be in an abusive relationship. You have the right to be in a healthy relationship and safe from abuse. Get the help you need.
