'The Day Ahead' Looks At LGBTQ Domestic Violence
An in-depth look by Newsy's morning show on how the complicated issue of domestic violence can be even more difficult in the LGBTQ community.
In this segment for Newsy's daily morning show, "The Day Ahead" explores domestic violence rates in the LGBTQ community.
Domestic violence rates are not only alarmingly high in the LGBTQ community, but the issue is studied less than among other groups. Domestic violence survivors are often already reluctant to report crimes, but LGBTQ survivors can experience the "double closet" phenomenon — not wanting to have their sexual orientation outed by reporting an incident to authorities.
This segment includes an interview with Professor Adam Messinger of Northeastern Illinois University — author of "LGBTQ Intimate Partner Violence: Lessons for Policy, Practice, and Research."
If you need help, the National Domestic Violence Hotline is at 1-800-799-7233. The number for the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs is 212-714-1141.
