Research on victimization experiences of sexual minority women and men has increased in the past decade. From these studies, it is clear that sexual minority people are at elevated risk for a wide range of victimization experiences over the lifespan, from childhood abuse in the home, to bullying and victimization at school, to physical and sexual assault in adulthood. This chapter provides an overview of this body of literature, highlighting prevalence and correlates of victimization among sexual minority people as well as implications for future research. It begins by considering some methodological challenges of work in this area.
