Steve, DV survivorLooking back I can see that it was a slow process that I wasn’t even aware of, it started with a dig about something I was wearing or something I had said. Then it progressed to belittling me in front of his friends and work colleagues. Eventually when I didn’t have any confidence the beatings started along with the threats and being told that it was my fault for looking at people on the bus or in a pub. I got to the stage where I couldn’t go out at night alone or use the internet. My mobile phone and email were checked everyday. As he is in IT he made me believe he could find out where I was and if I deleted things
Iona Fiesta, OUTSKIRTS editor: LGBT Domestic Abuse is a bit of an ‘elephant-in-the-room’ type situation: we all know it’s there, we probably all know someone who has experienced it, but too many of us would still rather tip-toe round it than face the reality. Maybe it’s the shame factor - we’re all so busy trying to convince the rest of society that gay people are fine, upstanding citizens that we can’t accept we have the same flaws as everyone else. Yet our community would actually be so much stronger if it did.
Greg, telefonska linija za pomoćPostoji pogrešno mišljenje da osobe iz LGBT populacije život provode na zabavama, olako trošeći svoje „ružičaste novčanice“ i prepuštajući se isključivo uživanju. U stvarnosti, međutim, život mnogih osoba iz LGBT populacije prepun je ožiljaka od siromaštva, diskriminacije, homofobije i nasilja u porodici. Stoga mi moramo širu javnost upoznati s ovim problemima i zahtevati formiranje stručnih službi koje će se boriti protiv ovakvih nejednakosti.
