Summary and Introduction This report describes incidents of domestic violence (DV) against people of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) experience that were report- ed during the year 2006 to community-based anti-violence organizations in 12 regions throughout the U.S. In addition, this year's report also includes general information about LGBT DV as well as regional-specific data, LGBT langauge and terminology, the impact of homophobia and transpho- bia on LGBT people experiencing domestic violence, and recommendations for changes to eliminate discrimination against these communities. The author of this annual report is the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs (NCAVP), a network of 33 community-based organizations responding to violence in all its forms affecting LGBT and HIV-affected individuals. Fourteen organizations, all of whom are NCAVP members, participated in collecting data for this report. Twelve out of the 14 organizations submit- ted statistical data for 2006. Those regions include Tucson, AZ; San Francisco, CA; Los Angeles, CA; Colorado; Chicago, IL; Boston, MA; Minnesota; Kansas City, Missouri; New York, NY; Columbus, OH; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; and Houston, TX. All of the regions above were able to submit 2005 data, except for three - Los Angeles, Colorado, and Chicago. Thus, previous-year data comparisons will inlcude 9 out of the 12 regions represented.
