It is estimated that more than half of transgender people living in the US will experience intimate partner violence (IPV) in their lifetime (James et al. 2016). As in the cisgender IPV (C-IPV) literature, transgender IPV (T-IPV) is often presented as a one-size-fits-all phenomenon, where all transgender victims experience the same IPV tactics and barriers to escape. Consequently, IPV victim service providers may risk falsely assuming that transgender victims are white, native-born citizens. In reality, minority, immigrant, and undocumented transgender victims face intersecting forms of violence and a variety of unique IPV tactics and barriers to escape shaped by racism, xenophobia, language challenges, and marginalized legal rights. This webinar reviews the still-emerging body of research on T-IPV at the intersections of race and immigration with a focus on TransLatinx populations. The webinar relies on interview-based data from T-IPV survivors as well as a condensed review of existing data stemming from the US Transgender Survey. Ultimately, this webinar emphasizes the need for tailoring outreach and IPV victim services to the unique needs of TransLatinx communities.

In this webinar the participant will learn about: 

  • The dynamics of T-IPV and how it differs from C-IPV.
  • The distinct overlaps of violence (interpersonal, institutional, and structural) among transgender people of color.
  • Unique realities and needs of TransLatinx communities.

Xavier L. Guadalupe-Diaz, Ph.D, Associate Professor of Sociology and Criminology, Framingham State University

Dr. Guadalupe-Diaz’s research focuses on various aspects of intimate partner and sexual violence within lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) communities including help-seeking, police disclosure, transgender victimization, risk factors, emotional abuse, and identity. He’s published numerous scholarly articles and chapters in journals such as Violence Against Women, Deviant Behavior, and the Journal of Aggression, Maltreatment, and Trauma. He’s the author of the first scholarly book on transgender intimate partner violence entitled: Transgressed: Intimate Partner Violence in Transgender Lives by New York University Press (NYU Press). His ongoing work includes a forthcoming edited volume entitled Transgender Intimate Partner Violence: A Comprehensive Introduction by NYU Press and analyses of help-seeking patterns among transgender survivors of IPV in the US transgender survey. Dr. Guadalupe-Diaz serves on the Board of Directors for Out MetroWest, a youth organization serving the needs of LGBTQ middle and high school students.
