Sexual Violence within and towards the LGBTQ community
Author: Nicole Mushero
This project seeks to explain the prevalence of sexual violence that LGBTQ people face, both at the hands of intimate partners and within that community at large. Sexual violence is a large problem in society and LGBTQ people are not unaffected by this, and sometimes are at greater risk of victimization because of their queer identities. There are specific risk factors and manifestations of sexual violence that clinicians should be aware of when dealing with this patient population. In addition, I hope to expose some biases that may be present against LGBT people that inhibit or prohibit them from seeking or receiving help. Finally, I want clinicians to be aware of some of the common medical manifestations of sexual violence that are not obvious and how to help a patient who discloses that they have experienced sexual violence.
