LGBTQ Domestic Violence Awareness Foundation


Many victims and survivors of Domestic & Family Violence (DFV) in LGBTQ+ relationships feel invisible, like they won’t be supported, and that no one will believe them.  To ensure that every victim and survivor’s voice is heard, the inaugural LGBTI Domestic Violence Awareness Day was established in Australia in 2020 to raise awareness of DFV in LGBTQ+ communities, remember the victims who have lost their lives, recognise the survivors and acknowledge the struggles of people who are in an abusive relationship.

The LGBTQ Domestic Violence Awareness Foundation was established with the purpose of:

  • Helping end domestic, family and intimate partner violence and abuse (DFV) within LGBTQ communities, by increasing visibility through an annual awareness campaign.

  • Advocating for and supporting the empowerment of LGBTQ victims and survivors of DFV.

  • Collaborating with other organisations to help reduce barriers to reporting violence, accessing support services and creating safe and inclusive experiences for LGBTQ victims and survivors of DFV.

  • Providing targeted information and resources to support workplaces, educational institutions and the broader community observe annual LGBTQ Domestic Violence Awareness Day campaigns.

We are registered as: Charity.
