The Helpline can support ALL adult victims of intimate image abuse who live in the UK. We don't always ask or necessarily need to know your gender or sexuality but it can sometimes help us to know who we can signpost you towards for more emotional support which our helpline cannot provide. We also understand that LGBTQ+ victims may also be facing slightly different types of issues alongside intimate image abuse, so if you feel comfortable letting us know, we will always do our best to point you in the best direction for holistic support. You can find some of these services below.

Image-Based Sexual Abuse (IBSA) and the impact this has on the well-being of LGBTQ individuals.
This PhD study aims to explore LGBTQ individuals’ experiences of Image-Based Sexual Abuse (also known as revenge pornography) on their mental health and well-being. The study is also interested in how much health and well-being organisations understand about IBSA and how easy it is for individuals to access services.
The project is looking for individuals identifying as LGBTQ and who have experienced IBSA to take part in the study.
