Activists say domestic violence in the LGBTI community is under-reported, and there needs to be more appropriate and targeted support services for gay victims.

The Queensland Government has committed $155,000 towards training frontline workers to better respond to domestic violence callouts in the LGBTI community.

The funding would be used to create resources to support training across Queensland, Minister for the Prevention of Domestic and Family Violence Di Farmer said.

"We want to equip frontline workers to recognise domestic and family violence in the LGBTIQ+ community and respond to perpetrators, victims and their children," Ms Farmer said.

"This project will focus on training staff in the domestic and family violence sector as well as other relevant professions so they know what to do when faced with these situations."
