I am conducting an international study of unacknowledged and underreported experiences of domestic violence amongst LGBT populations. Please let me know if you were in a violent relationship if the police ever became involved in your situation, how did they handle the situation? What recommendations would you make to police, attorneys and legal advocates, judges to better help someone in your situation? If you would like to become part of this study, please respond here. Thank you. DLB
