Bleeding Love: violence against lesbian and trans women
Between February 2015 and January 2016 our association is implementing an international research and awareness-raising project on the domestic and dating violence against lesbians and trans women in cooperation with Brescia University, Avvocatura per i Diritti LGBT, Zagreb Pride, Bilitis, LGL, ILGA Portugal, Broken Rainbow, and Cavaria organizations. The project is entitled “Bleeding Love”: Raising Awareness on Domestic and Dating Violence Against Lesbians and Transwomen in the European Union.
The project aims to investigate the causes and forms of domestic and dating violence; collect, compare and divulgate information regarding good practices regarding prevention, and will be followed by an awareness-raising campaign for both the target group and the general public. Case studies, research reports, information guides, a video campaign, blog- and Twitter-posts, a photo exhibition and a summarizing international conference will all help to make violence visible and to eliminate it.
The project is funded by the Civil Justice Programme of the European Commission in the Daphne III program (to prevent and combat violence against children, young people and women). Háttér receives 21,760 euros of the funding.
