Presented by
Aditi Bhattacharya and Kiara Montero Reyes
NYC Anti-Violence Project

Friday, October 13, 2023, 12:00-3:00pm

Approved for 3 NYS CE credits

The workshop will identify and define violence against Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and HIV-affected (LGBTQH) communities. We will explore how gender-based violence is a Queer issue and the unique ways that LGBTQH individuals experience violence at the intersection of actual and perceived identities, including gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, HIV status, race, ethnicity, national origin, language, ability, and religion. We will share insights gained from the work the Anti-Violence Project does with clients at intersections of marginalized identities and the systems they navigate at the micro, mezzo, and macro levels. The workshop will focus specifically on dynamics of relationship violence that challenge the binary ways of systemic and mainstream understanding of harm.

We will outline best practices when interacting with LGBTQH individuals in order to reduce the potential for re-victimization. We will specifically discuss strategies to explore relational dynamics from a harm reductionist and antioppressive framework that is affirming of identity and uplifts the nuances of LGBTQH survivorship and intersectional lived experience.
