We may want to think that it doesn't happen here in the LGBTQI community, but it does happen – at the same rate as in heterosexual relationships – 25% to 33% of all relationships are affected by Domestic Violence.

BRAVO Statement on #BlackPride4

For Immediate Release:
June 18, 2017

Contact: Gloria McCauley 614-294-7867

Columbus: BRAVO fully embraces the reality that racism, genderism, sexism, heterosexism, ageism, classism, ableism, transphobia, homophobia, biphobia, and all other forms of oppression are intrinsically linked. When one of us is hurt… when one of us is harmed we all are harmed. We stand with our community, our entire communities in opposition to all forms of oppression and violence, hate violence, interpersonal violence, and state violence. PRIDE is a March; a movement born of a resistance to state violence against our communities. We join others in our community calling for justice for the Black Pride 4. We call for hard conversations, we welcome uncomfortable conversations and creating safe spaces for those conversations. We pledge to continue the hard work of coming together to seek unity, equality, and safety for all.
