Abstract

for several decades now, a considerable amount of research as been conducted into intimate partner violence (IPV) in heterosexual relationships but, apart from some notable recent studies, the issue of gay IPV has not been well researched. This qualitative study explored this issue, which is not well known to society or widely acknowledged in the gay community, through the experiences of IPV of 15 gay men living in the North Island of New Zealand (NZ) and New South Wales, Australia. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with the participants to enable them to share their experiences of IPV as well as their opinions around certain related themes to enrich the data and to enable broader findings to be drawn.
