The purpose of this grant proposal was to develop a program, find potential funding sources and write a grant to fund a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) sensitivity training program for traditionally Heterosexual Intimate Partner Violence (HIPV) shelters in the Los Angeles County. An extensive literature review was performed to identify both the differences and similarities between Heterosexual Intimate Partner Violence (HIPV) and Same-Sex Intimate Partner Violence (SSIPV). An additional review was conducted to identify the challenges survivors of SSIPV face when attempting to access services, including the manner in which heterosexist norms and policies can interfere with the reporting of, and response to SSIPV. The goal of this project is to raise awareness of intimate partner violence in the LGBT community, as well as demonstrate the need for a culturally sensitive and same-sex affirming response to SSIPV. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
