Intimate Partner Violence Among GLBT Young People: Experiences of Service Providers, Community Activists, and Volunteers

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Extensive bodies of literature exist documenting the issue of intimate partner violence in the gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgender (GLBT) community (e.g. Renzetti, 1992; Leventhal and Lundy, 1999; Miller, Bobner, and Zarski, 2000; Brown and Groscup, 2009). A similar body of literature documents the challenges of being a GLBT teenager or young adult, including a sense of isolation, discrimination, potential risk-taking behavior, and a potentially increased risk of various forms of violent victimization (e.g. Gray, 1999; Miller, 2001; D’Augelli, Grossman, and Starks, 2006; Goldman, 2008). Presently, however, almost no research integrates the two concepts by inquiring about the experiences of GLBT youth and young adults as they venture into the world of same-sex relationships. This research is an effort to do that by first learning about the framework that presently exists to serve the needs of these young people in a Midwestern metropolitan area. By presenting the insights of community-based service providers, activists, and volunteers, this research attempts to assess the present situation of GLBT young people in this city, including their prevalence of intimate partner violence, current efforts to serve and reach out to them, and the challenges involved in this work.
