We are excited to formally announce our name change from the Gay Men’s Domestic Violence Project to the
GLBTQ Domestic Violence Project.
In 1994, we were initially founded to provide support and services for gay male victims and survivors of domestic violence; however, by 2000, our agency expanded its focus to include bisexual men and transgender individuals.
Two years ago, we engaged in a strategic planning process where stakeholders acknowledged the diversity of our clients and expanded the mission to include all gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer communities. The name change reflects our new mission and our dedication to delivering support and services to GLBTQ victims and survivors of domestic violence.
We believe that all victims and survivors deserve support and services that are culturally competent and that regardless of an individual’s sexual orientation and/or gender identity/expression people have the right to be treated with dignity and respect. We hope you join us in this journey as we deepen our outreach and education efforts in GLBTQ communities and continue to advocate for equal access to domestic violence services for victims and survivors.
Thank you for your support,
