National Report on Partner Violence and the LGBTQ community

The National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs (NCAVP) has produced this report to document intimate partner violence (IPV) within lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and HIV-affected (LGBTQH) communities. This critical report highlights the intricacies of IPV within LGBTQH communities, examines the barriers to safety for LGBTQH survivors, and outlines vital recommendations for responding to, preventing, and eradicating LGBTQH IPV. Summary from Colorado 2011 report:

In 2011 the Colorado Anti-Violence Program (CAVP) saw the highest number of survivors of intimate partner violence from those aged between 19-29, with 27% of total reports, whereas in 2010 the age group with the highest numbers were between the ages of 30-39. Overall, there was a small increase in the number of reports received recorded by CAVP, from 86 in 2010 to 89 in 2011, which is a 3% increase. There were more reports from both men and women in 2011 as compared to 2010, with men at 63%  (56 of total reports) and women at 39% (35 of the total) in 2011.
