April 10, 2009, Newsletter Issue #130: Lesban Health Topic: Domestic Violence

Tip of the Week

If you thought that domestic violence was specific to heterosexual couples, you may be surprised to know that domestic violence is has been reported in about eleven percent of lesbian homes. That's around half the 20 percent rate that's reported by heterosexual women. If you are in an abusive relationship, your rights and protection need to be honored. If you have nowhere to stay, contact your local gay and lesbian community to find out where there are lesbian-friendly shelters in your area. Staying physically safe is key, but you should also seek out psychological services provided by these community groups as well.
