Synergy, Vol. 16, No. 2, is dedicated to the child protection and custody challenges faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer, and transgender (LGBQT) survivors of domestic violence and by the LGBQT community. This issue was guest-edited by a new partner to the Domestic Violence Resource Network, the Northwest Network of Bisexual, Trans, Lesbian, and Gay Survivors of Abuse. It contains articles on the LGBQT experience of navigating social and legal systems, the LGBQT demonstrate access project, the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision on the Defense of Marriage Act, and the research about children raised by LGBQT people and same-sex couples.
