Violence against Lesbians and Gays in Slovenia: Comparing Data from Research Conducted in 2003–2004 and 2014–2015

The authors present the results of research on violence against lesbians and gays that was conducted as part of a study on the everyday life of gays and lesbians in Slovenia. The study was first conducted in 2003–2004, and repeated in 2014–2015. Wherever possible, the results were analysed comparatively in order to identify possible changes in the ten-year period. The authors focused on the different forms of violence (physical, psychological, sexual), the perpetrators of violence, and the environments in which violence occurs (public spaces, private spaces (family, intimate partnerships), school and work settings). The data shows that the majority of lesbians and gays are still targeted by violence, which is practically as common as it was ten years ago. However, the occurrence of violence against lesbians and gays has almost doubled in school settings. Lesbians are still more commonly victims of violence in the private sphere (family), while gays are more frequently victims of violence in the public sphere.
