"Our members are a diverse group of women of varying ages, backgrounds, locations, occupations, sexual orientations, family status, etc. What all our members have in common is the experience of having been sexually abused by their mother and the courage and fortitude to come share with and support other women on the same healing journey."

Sexual Assault & Rape Information for Lesbian,
Stop Abuse For Everyone (SAFE) provides unique
services for domestic violence victims. We look for those who typically
fall between the cracks, and are receiving the least amount of help --
people for whom few services are available. Our approach is to view domestic
violence as a human issue. We often say it this way, "it does matter
what type of person you are, if you're in an abusive relationship, it
is the type of experience you're having that is important. The services
you receive should be based on what you need, rather than who you are."
That is the goal we work towards.
A listing of sites and support groups for male sexual assault survivors.
"It seems to me that when rape is discussed as a problem, male survivors are left out of consideration.

The victimization of gays and lesbians based upon their sexual orientation includes harassment, vandalism, robbery, assault, rape and murder. The location of these crimes is not restricted to dark streets leading from gay establishments. Violence against gays and lesbians occurs everywhere: in schools, the workplace, public places and in the home. Those who commit these acts come from all social/economic backgrounds and represent different age groups (National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, Safety and Fitness Exchange, Lance Bradley and Kevin Berrill, 1986.)
