LGBTI Domestic Violence Awareness Day - #ImHereForYou
Today is Australia's first LGBTI Domestic Violence Awareness Day.
This day has been established, with the support of the Prime Minister, to acknowledge those within LGBTIQ+ communities who have been victims of domestic violence.
According to recent studies, up to 62% of LGBTIQ+ people have experienced domestic violence in their relationships. However, the instances of violence being reported to the police are still incredibly low.
