Abuse or violent attack

A disturbing number of LGBT people have experienced violent attack because of who they are or are perceived to be by the perpetrator(s). A violent anti-LGBT assault or attack could include, but is not restricted to, any of the following:

  • Being hit, punched, kicked or beaten up
  • Having objects thrown at you
  • Assault with a weapon
  • Sexual assault or rape
  • Being spat at
  • Damage to personal property or home (this could include bricks being thrown through windows or excrement being posted through the letterbox)
