LGBTQ Domestic Violence Awareness Day

Saturday 28 May 2022

LGBTQ Domestic Violence Awareness Foundation

Held on May 28, LGBTQ Domestic Violence Awareness Day aims to help end violence and abuse within LGBTQ+ communities, by increasing visibility through the annual awareness day campaign. While the campaign started in Australia, 2021 saw the awareness day expand globally with 310 organisations, government departments from eleven countries recognising the day including England, Wales, the USA, Canada, Ireland and the Netherlands. ​ The theme for the 2022 event is #SeenAndBelieved. Workplaces, educational institutions and the community, are encouraged to start a conversation about what they can do to ensure all people, including our LGBTQ+ communities, are supported if they experience domestic and family violence. People are also encouraged to learn more about the unique methods of power and control that may be experienced in LGBTQ+ relationships and how to reduce any barriers to reporting.
