New resource packet focuses on communities who identify as LGBTQ.

The National Sexual Violence Resource Center recently released a new information packet: Sexual Violence & Individuals Who Identify as LGBTQ.

This packet contains several resources focused on serving, engaging, and collaborating with individuals and communities who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, or questioning.

Survivors may face additional obstacles when seeking assistance due to a lack of LGBTQ affirming services. That alongside the intersection between structural inequalities of racism, sexism, heterosexism and various forms of oppression can make it difficult for LGBTQ-identified individuals to feel safe accessing services. Advocates and allied professionals can use this resource packet to either strengthen existing services, or discover new areas of program development.
