Queering Gender-Based Violence Prevention & Response in Canada


This report presents the findings from a literature review, focus group, and interviews on what we know about the scale and scope of GBV impacting 2SLGBTQ+ communities, looking at the experiences of queer and trans Black, Indigenous and people of colour, refugees and newcomers, trans+ people, queer women, youth, sex workers, and people living rurally or remotely. This report then turns to existing violence prevention programs and points to the gaps and needs.

This report discusses how the dominance of a structural gender binary within the gender based violence (GBV) sector still impacts how 2SLGBTQIA+ or gender and sexual diverse people are included, treated, and recognized within the sector. Research, funding, legislation, and service delivery have also been impacted, and are reinforced by an archetype created to understand violence as a victim-perpetrator cisgender heteronormative experience.
