The Anti-Violence Project defines domestic violence as a pattern of behaviors used by one person to exercise
power and control over another person.  Some people are often surprised to learn that domestic violence occurs in LGBT relationships to the same frequency and severity as it does among heterosexuals.

AVP defines sexual assault as any sexual contact made without a person's consent or permission, either by someone that person knows or by a stranger. These are criminal acts of power and control expressed through sexual aggression.  Sexual assault also occurs in same-gender relationships. In fact, sexual assault happens in every part of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. Neither sexual orientation nor the offender's gender changes the fact that rape and sexual assault are violent crimes.

A bias crime (also known as a hate crime) is a criminal offense committed against a person or property out of hatred for who they are or who people think they are. These acts are motivated in whole or in part by the offender’s bias against a race, religion, ethnic/national origin group, or sexual orientation group. Almost every lesbian, gay man, transgender person, or bisexual person has experienced some form of bias crime or knows someone who has.  Many LGBT individuals have become so used to violence being perpetrated against them that they tend to “expect” certain harassment for being LGBT. But the truth is, it’s never ok to be harassed or hurt because of who you are or who you’re perceived to be.”....
