Abstract:The problem of same-sex partner violence is a rather serious one in China today, and the current laws concerning anti-domestic violence for the protection of the victims are still in a deficient state. This paper compares local anti-domestic violence laws in China with six other countries and regions. Through academic research and case interviews, it highlights the protection of the LGBT community with regard to legislative situations and legal frameworks, and how to protect the LGBT community in accordance with the laws and through the implementation of legislative progress. By summarizing the characteristics of the laws against domestic violence in other regions and countries, the paper tries to push forward legislation pertaining to the LGBT group in China's anti-domestic violence laws.
