When Elizabeth* first fell in love with Janie* nearly two decades ago, the future looked rosy. They built a home together and had two children.

But eight or nine years later, as the stresses piled up — the death of loved ones, the need to field the parenting opinions of their children’s biological fathers — Janie began subjecting the family to lashings of verbal abuse.

Sleeping in her car to escape the violence in her home, Claire Smith (not her real name) realised her situation was desperate enough to turn to a women’s shelter.

But the idea of having to explain to someone that she was running from her female partner stopped her.

Activists say domestic violence in the LGBTI community is under-reported, and there needs to be more appropriate and targeted support services for gay victims.

The Queensland Government has committed $155,000 towards training frontline workers to better respond to domestic violence callouts in the LGBTI community.

Family violence support services:

  • 1800 Respect national helpline 1800 737 732
  • Women’s Crisis Line 1800 811 811
  • Men’s Referral Service 1300 766 491
  • Lifeline (24 hour crisis line) 131 114
  • Relationships Australia 1300 364 277
