Sorting it out: Gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer (GBTIQ) men's attitudes and experiences of intimate partner violence and sexual assault

18 June 2019

This report presents findings of research exploring men’s GBTIQ attitudes and experiences of intimate partner violence and sexual assault.

This report is published by Western Sydney University and ACON.

This report presents the findings of a survey of 895 gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer men about:

  • intimate partner violence
  • sexual assault
  • understandings of what constitutes abusive or unethical behaviour in relationships
  • awareness of abuse and violence in their social networks
    and
  • willingness to intervene as bystanders.

The survey found that almost two-thirds of the participants had been in an unhealthy or abusive relationship, and that few participants either consulted a friend or service provider or reported abuse to police.
