Due to transphobia and its impact (violence, loss of employment, loss of loved ones), many trans people and their partners experience isolation and invisibility. This can create vulnerability to violence. Trans people who have been abused have significantly fewer services available to them, even in large cities. This brochure provides some information about relationship abuse for trans people.
