Exploring sexual orientation and intimate partner violence
Two studies have examined issues of sexual orientation and intimate partner violence, including its impact on substance abuse and physical and mental health as well as the effects of child abuse on its victims. Results of the studies show that homosexuals and bisexuals are victims of intimate partner violence more frequently than their heterosexual counterparts — at rates of 50 percent and 32 percent respectively. If non-heterosexual individuals are abused as children, two-thirds will face abuse as adults at the hands of intimate partners, the research shows.
