Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, queer and HIV-Affected: Intimate Partner Violence - 2011
Despite reflecting a 22.2% drop in reports of LGBTQH intimate partner violence (IPV), NCAVP’s 2011 report documents nineteen homicides--the highest number of LGBTQH IPV homicides ever recorded. This represents an increase of more than three times 2010’s six LGBTQH IPV homicides. This dramatic increase in reported IPV homicides illustrates the severity and deadly impact of LGBTQH IPV. Also in the 2011 report, NCAVP analyzes person-level data for the first time. Person-level data allows NCAVP to assess which LGBTQH survivors faced disproportionate rates of violence and service discrimination as compared to overall LGBTQH survivors. Within 2011’s IPV report, data indicates that gay men, LGBTQH communities of color, LGBTQH youth and young adults, and transgender communities experienced the most severe forms of IPV. These findings continue to highlight the importance of IPV prevention, strategic responses to IPV, and the need for research and accurate documentation of LGBTQH IPV.
