Title Abused gay men don't see they are victims Degree of recognition International Media name/outlet BBC Scotland News Media type Web Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 14/04/23 Description Gay and bisexual men are being abused by romantic partners but face multiple barriers to support, according to recent studies.
Research from Glasgow Caledonian University found that one in four men experienced violence in same-sex relationships.
It heard from victims who shared sometimes harrowing accounts of abuse including physical violence, rape and psychological abuse from both casual and longer-term partners.
Academics have called for more awareness around the subject and improvements to support services to help prevent "generations" of men facing the same problems.
