You have the right to safety and support.
Beyond physical, emotional, and financial violence, other tactics are often used by abusers to control intimate partners in LGBTQIA+ relationships. Some examples include threatening to out you to family and employers; portraying themselves as the victim to friends and support systems; and describing the violence as mutual or consensual.
