Webinar: Transgender Intimate Partner Violence at the Intersections of Race, Ethnicity, and Immigration
Jun 1 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm
Transgender Intimate Partner Violence at the Intersections of Race, Ethnicity, and Immigration
June 1, 2020 12:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. CST
*This webinar is pending OVW Approval*
It is estimated that more than half of transgender people living in the US will experience intimate partner violence (IPV) in their lifetime (James et al. 2016). As in the cisgender IPV (C-IPV) literature, transgender IPV (T-IPV) is often presented as a one-size-fits-all phenomenon, where all transgender victims experience the same IPV tactics and barriers to escape.
Presenter: Xavier L. Guadalupe-Diaz, Ph.D, Associate Professor of Sociology and Criminology, Framingham State University

Webinar: Gay Latino Sexual Assault Survivors : Best Practices To Supporting Nuestros Hermanos Part I
Jun 29 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 am

Part I: June 29, 2020, 12:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. CST

This two-part webinar serves as a primer for community stakeholders, advocates, researchers, and service providers who may interface with Latino sexual assault survivors. Participants will be provided with an overview of prior research of sexual violence towards gay men and the LGBT Latinx community, including victimization prevalence rates and known barriers for this population. Topics surrounding Latino masculinities, and heterosexism will be discussed in relation to their influence on gay Latino sexual assault survivors.  Particular emphasis will be placed on the way homophobia and racism (including anti-Black racism) affect the experiences of gay Latino sexual assault survivors during the reporting process and follow-up care.  Relevant policies and their implications for gay Latino sexual assault survivors will also be discussed. Dr. López will share his own research, which focuses on the barriers and facilitators encountered by gay Latino sexual assault survivors during the reporting process.  He will specifically highlight how homophobia and racism affected their decision-making process, and their experiences when reporting having been sexually assaulted to reporting authorities and in receiving follow up care. Lastly, participants will be provided with best practices for engaging with gay Latino sexual assault survivors and how to best support them in their community.

In this webinar the participant will learn about:

  • Identifying the unique challenges encountered by gay Latino sexual assault survivors when deciding to report having been sexually assaulted to authorities and the challenges experienced by gay Latino assault survivors when reporting having been sexually assaulted to reporting authorities.
  • Discuss the role that the intersectionality of their multiple marginalized identities determines the factors they consider when deciding to report and their experiences when reporting having been sexually assaulted to authorities.
  • Describe the ways in which community stakeholders, researchers, health care providers, and social service providers can effectively engage with gay Latino sexual assault survivors to reduce re-traumatization and engage with these men in a culturally responsive manner.
