Violence Against LBT Women

How does Violence Against Women and Girls impact Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender women

This survey has been produced by our project support intern, Heather Farley, aimed at Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender (LBT) women to better understand their experiences of violence, and what services they have relied on for support.

What is the purpose of this research?

To gain an understanding of the experiences of violence facing lesbian, bisexual and Transgender women across Scotland. The data collected hopes to demonstrate the dual discrimination facing queer women. In doing so it shall serve to inform and shape Zero Tolerance's resources and strategy.

Notes for participants:

Please only complete this survey relating to experiences you have had whilst living in Scotland.

Some questions may be triggering for participants, please do not feel obligated to respond to anything that makes you uncomfortable. For additional support and advice relating to Gender Based Violence see links to resources here:
