Lesbian/Gay Power and Control Wheel

Created by the National Center on Domestic and Sexual Violence and Roe and Jagodinsky, the Power and Control Wheel illustrates the ways in which violence most commonly manifests itself in abusive relationships in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community. It refers to coercion and threats, intimidation, emotional abuse, isolation, minimizing, denying, and blaming, using children, using privilege, using economic abuse, and addresses internalized and external homophobia.
