4 in 5 LGBT people experience hate crime

Galop have produced the Hate Crime Report for 2016 and it has some shocking statistics.

This report presents evidence about the needs and priorities of LGBT communities in relation to hate crime. It includes analysis of an online community survey of 467 LGBT people, which asked about experiences of hate crime and interactions with services. It also analyses interviews and written submissions from 18 individuals who have either experienced hate crime, or are professionals working on this issue. Despite progress on this issue, the results presented here suggest that homophobia, biphobia and transphobia remain a significant part of LGBT peoples’ lives. Additionally, it found that individuals face considerable barriers to accessing assistance in terms of policy, practice and legislation.
