International Day for the Elimination of Sexual Violence in Conflict

International Day for the Elimination of Sexual Violence in Conflict

19th of June is International Day for the Elimination of Sexual Violence in Conflict. There is a list of various articles about sexual violence against LGBTIQA+ people.”Many studies that have focused on individuals who identify as LGBTQ have found this population has been subjected to sexual harassment, with high rates reported in academic settings. For example, Fineran’s (2002) research suggests a correlation between sexual harassment victimization and increased rates of suicide attempts and missed school time among gay, lesbian, and bisexual students.” (article 4 – NSVRC) According to Conflict Related Sexual Violence Annual Report by United Nations (2019) LGBTIQA+ survivors of sexual violence in conflict cannot access to justice and health services because of the criminalisation. We strongly recommend the fifth article specifically for mental health service providers. We declare that we stand with LGBTIQA+ survivors of sexual violence in conflict. LGBTIQA+ fellows you are not alone. We will be here for you.
