Using examples of historical and present state sanctioned violence, we explore the broader impact that exclusionary practices impact the way LGBTQ+ survivors may experience barriers with identifying violence and when seeking supportive resources in the community.This workshop aims to provide participants with a basic understanding of the nuanced ways intimate partner violence shows up and is exacerbated within LGBTQ+ relationships, as well as some tangible considerations to adopt when providing support to survivors.
- Understand the impact that white supremacy and state sanctioned violence has on survivors who hold LGBTQ+ identities.
- Understand some of the barriers that LGBTQ+ survivors face when trying to access services in the community.
- Understand some of the reasons why LGBTQ+ survivors may not feel able to identify with the mainstream narrative of “survivor” and may not feel able to disclose their experience with service providers.
