Title

Coll. 123: Gay Men's Domestic Violence Project

Date

1994 - 2015

Description

The Gay Men's Domestic Violence Project (LGBTQ-DVP) was founded in 1994, by a victim of domestic violence when he was repeatedly denied services by mainstream domestic violence shelters in his attempt to leave his abusive partner. The organization was originally named, A Support Service for Gay Male Victims of Violence.

The organization initially focused on creating services for gay male victims of domestic violence and soon changed its name to the Gay Men's Domestic Violence Project. The scope of focus for the organization began expanding, first to include bisexual men and transgender individuals and then to include all GLBTQ communities.
