It’s National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and we are discussing the lack of  awareness around the topic in the LGBTQ community. Many of the same tactics are used to gain power and control as are seen in abusive dynamics within heterosexual relationships. Nurse Practitioner, James Simmons, joins us as we talk about relationship red flags and how to know if you're in an abusive relationship. We also share resources for those who need support.

If you or someone you know is in an abusive relationship there are many hotlines to help:

LGBT National Hotline - 888 - 843-4564

National Domestic Violence Hotline  ----- 1 800 -799 - SAFE (7233)
