Despite significant gaps in research and practice, both national and international evidence suggests LGBTIQ people experience intimate partner violence at a similar, if not higher rate to heterosexual, cisgender women. The Voices for Equality and Respect project was undertaken to better understand the dynamics of LGBTIQ young people’s relationships with intimate partners and family members, and the broader societal factors that influence these relationships. The (Re)shaping Respect research report adds to the evidence base about what drives LGBTIQ family violence and the ‘Step Up’ Practice Guide provides practical solutions for change beyond leading heteronormative frameworks and narratives.
This CoP will highlight the relevance of this work in the prevention of violence against women and unpack barriers and enablers for working in this space. This CoP is appropriate for anyone interested in creating inclusive and respectful environments for LGBTIQ people and communities.
Afternoon tea and networking included. Registrations essential.
