PinkPaper.com is disturbed by research showing more than half of Canberra’s lesbian and bisexual women have been in an abusive relationship.
The article goes on:
The survey also showed that 38 per cent said they had been discriminated against and the vast majority reported suffering verbal abuse. Others had been spat on, bullied at work or abused by straight men whose sexual advances were rejected.
Also, 75 per cent said they did not feel strongly connected to the territory’s gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community, although 70 per cent said some or most of their friends were lesbian or bisexual.
