Our partner organisation LGBT Youth Scotland runs a project on LGBT domestic abuse in Scotland, focused on helping service providers help people who are experiencing abuse. Their website has links to many organisations which can help. Click here to visit it.
Domestic abuse doesn't just happen to straight women - it affects gay men, lesbians, bisexual and transgender people. One in four lesbian and bisexual women and more than a third of gay and bisexual men have experienced domestic abuse from a partner.
Domestic abuse happens in many different ways, and it can be hard to realise what you're going through is actually abuse.
You can assess your relationship by answering the following questions.
If you answered yes to any of these questions you may be experiencing domestic abuse. Feeling scared, humiliated, pressured or controlled in a relationship is a sign something is wrong. There is never an excuse for domestic abuse.
For help and advice, contact Broken Rainbow, or call the Scottish Government's Domestic Abuse Helpline on 0800 027 1234.
