While many aspects of LGBTQ+ sexual assault are similar to those experienced by heterosexual victims, it is not in all ways identical. Perpetrators often attempt highly specific forms of abuse based on identity and community dynamics, including:
Intimate Partner Sexual Violence:
Victims with Disabilities:
Statistically, individuals with disabilities are just as likely to experience domestic violence, however it often lasts for longer periods of time
When sexual assault occurs it is devastating to the victim regardless of gender. Men are entitled to the same services and support following a sexual assault. Whether or not a victim chooses to report or prosecute a sexual assault his local crisis center can provide referrals for counselors and/or support groups that can help victims deal with their experiences.
Drug Facilitated Sexual Assault:
Some rapists use drugs to disable their intended victim. For more information about the warning signs of drug facilitated sexual assault, please click here.
