Findings on Victimization by Sexual Orientation:
Implications for Preventing Sexual Violence and IPV in LBGT Communities
In January 2013, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a new report, The National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey: 2010 Findings on Victimization by Sexual Orientation, that shows that lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) people experience sexual violence and intimate partner violence at the same or higher rates as heterosexual people. In the web conference, CDC’s MikelWalters will describe the findings of the report. We will then explore the implications for developing, implementation and evaluating sexual violence and intimate partner violence prevention efforts in LGBT communities.
