Gender-based violence (GBV) in 2SLGBTQ+ communities is pervasive but stigmatized; it is both hyper-visible and invisibilized, known and neglected. Transphobia, homophobia, and biphobia are structural forms of GBV that  2SLGBTQ+ communities navigate every day in their public and private lives. 2SLGBTQ+ communities experience family violence, intimate partner violence (IPV), sexual violence, and street harassment, but are outsiders to GBV  services built for cis, straight, white women. In fact, 2SLGBTQ+ people face discrimination and further GBV while accessing GBV services and reporting GBV, compounding the violence.
