When considering domestic abuse most of the time people will picture a man and a woman in a relationship. Domestic Abuse can and does happen to anyone, including to people in same sex relationships.

Domestic abuse is difficult and for some people can take a lot of courage for anybody to report it and seek help. For people in same sex relationships it can sometimes be even harder to report it and ask for help. Often threats are made to tell others about a person’s sexuality as a way of controlling them or hurting them particularly, if they haven’t told friends and family members. There are also many cases of people in same sex relationships being forced by family members to marry someone of the opposite sex. This is also a form domestic abuse and should not be tolerated by anybody whether it be man or woman.
