Translated by Caro Gervasi
When she was a sophomore in college, Olivia Muse endured an emotionally abusive relationship with her first girlfriend. Four years later, Olivia still can’t help but wonder: “Did that happen to me because I’m a bad lesbian?” Since when did abuse happen in the queer community? And why isn’t anyone talking about this?
Now, Olivia is tired of the silence. Through documenting her own recovery, Olivia challenges the narrative of abuse, empowers other survivors, and tries to motivate change in a community from within.
LINEA LESBICA E ANTIVIOLENZA is a free and completely confidential service provided by the Bologna Lesbian Association and aimed at LBT people who experience situations of violence in lesbian relationships.
Telephone support, provided by anti-violence operators trained with the feminist method, is active
