Description
Despite strong equality laws, new research shows that the UK has experienced a significant jump in anti-LGBT incidents over the past five years. What explains the increase, and how can we safeguard LGBT lives? The study, conducted by LGBQIA rights charity Stonewall, used a nationally representative sample of 5,000 people from across the UK. Researchers found that since 2013, the number of lesbian, gay and bisexual people who have experienced hate crimes has risen by 78 percent — increasing from nine percent in 2013 to 16 percent in 2017.
