    • Society & Culture

This week we sat down with In this episode we are joined by Annie Wade Smith to talk about survivors within the LGBTQ+ community and the need for representation and support of this group. Annie speaks openly on her channels about Mental Health & Self Acceptance, the LGBTQ+ community and is also an Independent Sexual Violence Advisor (ISVA).

Annie helps to educate the justice system on LGBTQ+ cases as well as on why many people within this community may not report, due to status of being out etc. In this episode we discuss the need for additional support for the queer community and raise awareness to the discriminations that are common within LGBTQ+ cases of sexual abuse.   

The conversation about queer survivors is surface level and deserves to be spoken about more. Galop have now also released their research paper on queer survivors.
