Sexual assault occurs because an abuser is misusing their power and control, not because of you or your sexual orientation.

However, LGBTQ youth are at higher risk for dating violence than heterosexual youth:

  • 23% percent of LGBTQ youth reported sexual dating violence, compared to
  • 12% of heterosexual youth.
