In Memoriam

Lives Lost to Anti-LGBTQ and Intimate Partner Violence

Though we strive to share stories of joy and resiliency, we must also honor and mourn those we have lost to violence. We hold their lives in our memory as we continue to fight violence in our lives and in our communities. Below are the names of the lives we have lost to anti-LGBTQ violence this year so far. Those who have a purple ribbon by their photo were lost as a result of intimate partner violence. For two decades of national reports on violence in and against LGBTQ communities, please visit our reports page.

NCAVP works to prevent, respond to, and end all forms of violence against and within lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ) and HIV-affected communities. If you need support in these difficult times or are experiencing violence, you can reach out to your local NCAVP member or call our free bilingual national hotline at 212-714-1141. NCAVP is a national coalition of local member programs and affiliate organizations who create systemic and social change.
