Domestic violence stretches beyond the stereotypical image of a husband beating his wife. As Domestic Violence Month comes to a close, LGBT victims are speaking out on how violence within relationships has impacted their lives.
The program, "Stories of Courage: Loud and In Color," at Memphis Gay & Lesbian Community Center tonight will feature a guided dialogue with members of the LGBT community whose lives have been affected by domestic violence. The event is jointed sponsored by MGLCC, the Family Safety Center, and the Shelby County District Attorney's Office.
Local organizations will be on hand to share information on services available to help victims of domestic violence.
"Stories of Courage: Loud and In Color" is free to the public. It runs from 6 to 8 p.m.
