A glimpse of the problem:

Transgender victims are more likely to experience intimate partner violence in public, compared to those who do not identify as transgender.

43.8% of lesbian women and 61.1% of bisexual women have experienced rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner at some point in their lifetime, as opposed to 35% of heterosexual women.

In a study of male same sex relationships, only 26% of men called the police for assistance after experiencing near-lethal violence.
