LGBTQ Sexual Assault

Sexual assault may happen to anyone, regardless of race, gender, or sexual preference. It is misleading to say that same-sex relationships are exempt from sexual assault. Similar to heterosexual couples, LGBTQ relationships experience sexual abuse at a rate of 30 to 40%.

Those who identify as LGBTQ individuals and are sexual assault survivors face both general obstacles and obstacles unique to the LGBTQ community while trying to get help.

LGBTQ victims often feel that:

  • They will be blamed for the event or it will attributed to their sexuality.

  • Fear of others finding out about their sexuality.

  • Ashamed for not following traditional binary expectations

  • They will not get support needed because of their sexuality.
