Tackling Sexual Violence in the LGBT Community


Sexual violence can affect anyone regardless of their gender identity or what type of relationship they’re in. The Mix takes a look at sexual violence in the LGBT community and find out where you can get support. This webpage contains information about the myth that you don’t have to worry about consent due to their partner being the same gender, what to do if your partner is drunk, and what to do if you’re trans and worried about sexual assault.


This is a great landing page for LGBT people to start when thinking about sexual consent and sexual violence within their community.
