COVID-19 :: The City and the Alexandria Health Department strongly urge those celebrating Thanksgiving to choose lower risk activities to reduce the likelihood of COVID-19 outbreaks, rather than the traditional indoor gatherings and traveling. The guidance from the City and AHD reflects Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations to minimize COVID-19 exposure and spread during Thanksgiving. Limit gatherings to members of the household or host virtual dinners with other loved ones, prepare family recipes and consider contactless delivery for loved ones nearby, watch sports and events at home and shop for the holidays online.

Are you part of the LGBTQ+ community? Are you experiencing violence in your relationship? People who identify as LGBTQ+ may face additional barriers to getting help and unique forms of manipulation from a partner related to sexual orientation or gender identity. For example, by threatening to “out” the victim of intimate partner violence to their family or employer if they attempt to reveal abuse, the abusive partner can make reporting violence far more difficult. Local and national resources are available to help. Call 703.746.4911 or visit alexandriava.gov/LGBTQ and alexandriava.gov/DomesticViolence.

10/12/2020

Intimate partner violence is a serious problem in some LGBTQ+ relationships, just like it is in some heterosexual relationships, but it doesn’t often get serious attention. According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, 43.8% of lesbian women and 61.1% of bisexual women have experienced rape, physical violence and/or stalking by an intimate partner at some point in their lifetime, as compared to 35% of heterosexual women. If you are surviving violence or trying to help a friend, you are not alone. For resources and more information, call 703.746.4911 or visit alexandriava.gov/LGBTQ and alexandriava.gov/DomesticViolence.
