School of Social Work, University of Souther California, Los Angeles, California, USA
A gap in research exists regarding intimate partner violence (IPV)

in lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) indi-
viduals’ relationships. The article begins with an overview of IPV

victimization, perpetration, and related attitudinal differences be-
tween male and female LGBTQ college students. Study results found

that females reported higher levels of psychological victimization
than gay males. Additionally, the male participants reported greater
attitudinal acceptance of IPV. Counseling implications regarding
IPV victimization, perpetration, and attitudinal acceptance for IPV
among LGBTQ populations are discussed.
