Vs. Unhealthy Relationships

Even though you may personally not be suffering from relationship violence, chances are that you have known someone or will know someone who is.

Between 25-33 percent of LGBTQ+ relationships include dating or domestic violence, a rate similar to heterosexual relationships.
