MA Statewide LGBQ/T Community Needs Assessment

The Network/La Red released surveys across Massachusetts mid March-June 20, 2019 to anonymously gather the experiences of LGBQ/T folks who may have questioned their safety* in their relationship(s)**. For last 30 years The Network/La Red has been telling organizations what LGBQ/T communities need. This an opportunity for these organizations to hear directly from our communities what is needed to provide the best support for LGBQ/T survivors of domestic violence (partner abuse).

You helped us collect over 3,000 responses! Thank you for your support.

*By safety we mean that you have the freedom to be yourself in your relationship and can make decisions about your life, your time, your body, and how you exist in the world. This feeling of safety should extend to your emotional, physical, financial, cultural, identity and sexual well-being. 

**By relationship(s) we are referring to a range of intimate relationships including but not limited to:
Boyfriend/girlfriend • Date • Boo • Play partner • Hookup • Lover • Spouse • Sexual partner • Life partner • Primary or secondary or other non-monogamous partner
