As a leader in the anti-violence movement, WEAVE is committed to addressing issues of violence in all communities. WEAVE’s services are available to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) survivors of intimate partner violence and sexual assault.
You share many of the same feelings as other survivors of sexual assault or domestic violence, such as guilt, powerlessness, feeling unsafe, denial, shock, anger, etc. While your experience of fear and distress does not depend on gender or sexuality, your experience of the world is extremely influenced by this. As with any group who experiences prejudice, there are certain barriers and concerns that are particular to the LGBTQ community when trying to access services.
Call 911 if you are in immediate danger.
All of WEAVE’s services can be accessed by calling the Support and Information Line. WEAVE’s 24-Hour Support and Information Line offers immediate intervention and support by trained peer counselors. Help is available in over 23 languages.
Call whenever you feel the need to talk, regardless of whether the incident just occurred, or occurred months or even years ago.
