Hate crime rates grow in Britain, study showed


The amount of hate crimes on the basis of sexuality grows rapidly in UK. The proportion of gay, lesbian and bisexual people who have experienced a hate crime rose from nine per cent in 2013 up to 16 per cent in 2017 according to Stonewall’s report based on the You Gov. polling of 5000 LGBT respondents. Most victims of hate crimes don’t report to police about it. “While we have come a long way in the past 25 years, it is clear there is still a huge amount of work we need to do before all LGBT people can feel safe, included and free to be themselves in Britain today,” Stonewall chief Ruth Hunt adds, ensuring that the charity’s main task is to make LGBT people safe and to let them know there is somebody to count on when something bad happens. Trans people were not included in the study, but the experts note that they are subjected to hate crimes even oftener
