Bisexual Crime Victims: Least Visible, Most at Risk
It’s often said they have “the best of both worlds,” but victimization rates tell a very different story. Bisexuals make up the largest part of the LGBTQ community, yet are the most invisible and have some of the highest rates of victimization. This webinar will go over the statistics, look at some of the reasons why this population is so invisible and at-risk, and explore the long-term health implications of these facts. We will also begin to explore how the victim service field and LGBTQ advocates can begin to better respond to this population’s unique needs.
