Verizon lent abused homos a helping hand today. The telecommunications giant offered Gay Men’s Domestic Violence Project a $75,000 grant to expand its hotline coverage from Massachusetts into Rhode Island and Connecticut. GMSVP director Curt Rogers said:
The Verizon grant is significant for several reasons. It expands a model program into other states, and it provides a lifeline to gay, bisexual and transgender male victims currently without access to services. It also raises awareness among other corporations that domestic violence is a critical issue that impacts everyone.
Yes, even you: statistics show that one in every four gay men will face abuse from a lover.
