October is widely known as breast cancer awareness month, but it is also LGBT history month and domestic violence awareness month. The LGBT community has come a long way in the past several years, but there are still research areas in which a lot of work has to be done. One of those ares is domestic violence in queer relationships. Often times when people hear about psychical abuse, the narrative is always a man and woman. In reality however, queer men and women are more likely to be a victim of domestic violence. I did a short video piece to denounce some of the stereotypes and make people realize that domestic violence within in the LGBT community is an issue for everyone regardless of what you identify as.
