Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority
While there is robust literature on the prevalence of traumatic experiences among LGBTQ+ individuals, this study provides much needed information on the prevalence of victimization, discrimination, and other stressful life experiences of LGBTQ+ victims in Illinois. Study findings can demonstrate this population’s need for services and supports, including those that are trauma-informed and/or help victims heal from trauma.
