Responding to the Needs of LGBTQ People of Color Experiencing SV, IPV, or Stalking

LGBTQ People of Color experience high levels of trauma, discrimination, violence, and oppression based on race,gender, and sexuality. Understanding how racism, homophobia, and transphobia simultaneously affect LGBTQ People of Color is critical when working to provide culturally relevant services to LGBTQ survivors of violence.

This guide is designed to help providers be more informed about the nuanced and complex realities of LGBTQ People of Color. It is for service providers to use when working to reach LGBTQ people and communities of color who are experiencing violence in their lives. It is not a one-size fits all guide but rather a tool that aims to provide context as well as action steps for reaching these communities.
