This Guide is for lesbian and bisexual women who have been affected by sexual violence, to help you find the support you need.

Domestic abuse as a transgender woman

While there are many similarities between domestic abuse in non-cis relationships and other relationships, a number of issues must be taken into account when understanding the complicated dynamics that exist in abusive relationships when you are a transgender woman.

Domestic abuse as a transgender man

There is a predominant misconception that the more ‘masculine’ person in an abusive relationship is more likely to be the abuser, or that only women can be subject to domestic abuse. These preconceived notions make it more difficult for us to recognise the warning signs as well as the ways abuse manifests itself for transgender men.

Domestic abuse in same-sex female relationships

There is a misconception that same-sex female relationships can’t be abusive as there is no “man”. This makes it more difficult for us to recognise the warning signs, and often the abuse itself. Find the different signs of abuse, specifically in same-sex female relationships.

Domestic abuse in same-sex male relationships

Abuse within same-sex male relationships is as common as abuse against heterosexual men in heterosexual relationships. While both share many similarities, a number of issues must be taken into account when understanding the complicated dynamics that exist in abusive same-sex male relationships. Find all the information you need to help identify the different signs of abuse, specifically in same-sex male relationships.
