October is designated as Domestic Violence Awareness Month. In the LGBTQ community, domestic violence and abuse is generally referred to as Intimate Partner Violence and Abuse, or IPV/A.
As a journalist, IPV/A is my signature issue. Therefore, in recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, I’m involved in various activities. The first was an in-depth discussion of IPV/A on Dishing Tea, the international radio show hosted by Demetris Dennis Taylor.
And, the first of my three-part series on IPV/A entitled “I Love You to Death” has just debuted in The WOE Report, my new and exclusive column for Baltimore Gay Life. Visit: baltimoregaylife.com/i-love- you-to-death-part-one/
Stay tuned to www.wyattevans.com for more news and features on this critical…and potentially life-threatening behavior, which is deeply stigmatized—and tends to be grossly underreported in the LGBTQ community.
