IL Lesbian, Aged 70, Abused in Home Care Facility
In February 2018 a 70 year old lesbian woman in Illinois released a video announcing her lawsuit against a home care facility for failing to protect her against homophobic abuse. She describes being spat on, hit, and told that she would “burn in hell.” The abuse made her afraid to shower or change clothes. She said that she could not turn to staff for help. The abuse marginalized her and made her unequal.
