Queering Sexual Violence:
Confronting the Mainstream
Anti­Violence Movement

Queering Sexual Violence works to disrupt heterosexual privilege and the gender binary system inoverarching attitudes towards sexual violence, pri­
mary prevention, and aftercare. In opening up the dialog about the limitations of the anti­sexual vio­lence movement for LGBTQIH survivors and activists,
Jennifer Patterson sees hopeful change for the fu­ture.

~Jennifer Patterson is a survivor of opposite­ sex rape and a lesbian. By being out about both, she is constantly challenged by how these cohabiting aspects of herself seem to be a regular point of contention for other people.
She trained and worked as a group facilitator for Project Envision, a Department of Health funded off­ shoot of New York City Alliance Against Sexual Assault
