Domestic abuse happens in same-sex relationships too.

One in four lesbian couples experience domestic abuse, and approximately 8-10% of men who call the Men’s Advice Line identify as gay or bisexual.

In addition, 80% of Transgender people have reports show experienced emotional, sexual or physical abuse from a partner or ex-partner.
