hate crimes

Where do these incidents happen and who are the perpetrators? 

Anti-LGBT or homophobic hate crimes (harassment and violent assault) could take place anywhere:

  • in public (in the street, in the park, in a public sex environment or any other public place)
  • in the victims home (or in another person's house)
  • at school, college, University
  • in the workplace

    The perpetrators are not always strangers; in fact, many people know their attacker(s). They could be family members, friends, neighbours, partners, work colleagues or fellow students.

    A number of LGBT people report that they have been abused, attacked or assaulted (both verbally and physically) by police officers.
