One in three LGBT+ people in Britain have been abused by their relatives, a study by Galop has found. The LGBT+ anti-abuse charity found that of the 5,000 people surveyed, nearly one-third (29 percent) had experienced abuse by a relative, most often their own parents. Galop reported that the abuse ranged from verbal harassment to threats of homelessness and physical violence. Five percent of respondents had been subjected to conversion therapy “through a family member attempting to change, ‘cure’ or suppress their sexual orientation or gender identity”.
