Contrary to Popular Belief, Straight People Do Not Have a Monopology on Abusive Relationships
This 11” x 17” poster was designed by Fenway Community Health Center for use in health care settings to encourage lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender-identified individuals to talk to their health care providers about relationship abuse. The poster includes a photo of two men and two women with headline: “Contrary to popular belief, straight people do not have a monopoly on abusive relationships.” The subtext reads: “Abuse is not always physical. And straight people aren’t the only ones with the problem. If you think you might be in an abusive relationship, you are not alone. Whether you’re gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender, talk to someone who can help. Today. Before things get worse.” Referral to the national hotline on domestic violence is provided along with the TTY number. Blank space is included at the bottom of the poster so facilities can write in local hotlines, or identify local programs for further support. Available in English and Spanish.
