Genesis Women's Shelter & Support offers domestic violence services to everyone who identifies as a woman. To improve access to services for all intimate partner violence survivors in need of safety, shelter & support, Genesis The Podcast is launching a Pride Month Podcast Series focused on intimate partner violence (IPV) in LGBTQIA+ relationships.
Each episode in this series is a dialogue with survivors and/or experts highlighting the needs and issues of IPV survivors in the LGBTQIA+ community as well as possible solutions for improved responses to their experiences. Our hope is that this dialogue will grow into new collaborations across communities that expand our understanding of IPV, reduce its prevalence, and provide more equitable responses and services for all survivors of IPV in LGBTQIA+ relationships. Media consultant Ron Corning joins the conversation as co-host and interviewer for the series, offering critical insights into IPV among LGBTQIA+ partners.
To open the conversation, X, co-director of House of Rebirth, joins Genesis CEO Jan Langbein and Genesis senior director of residential services Jordyn Lawson to discuss the experiences of IPV among trans women of color. Highlighting the lack of services in the Dallas community for trans women of color IPV survivors, we focus on both the issues and the possible solutions to better serve survivors and prevent future violence against trans women.
