May 2014 sees the first Broken Rainbow Month. Our aim is to bring the issue of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans* (LGBT) domestic violence and abuse out into the open.

We are dedicated to relieving the distress and suffering caused to LGBT people through domestic violence and abuse, by raising awareness and offering advice, support and referral services.



We are calling on all organisations, groups and individuals that share our aim to help increase awareness throughout the month.

Here in the Broken Rainbow Month Hub you will find activity ideas, resources for social media and a calendar of upcoming events, check out the links for organisations & groups, individuals and the media on the left. Sign up below to keep up to date with activity throughout May and how you can get involved.
