It may be that someone has found evidence of your sexuality or gender identity on the internet, such as Facebook or Gaydar, or perhaps that you have been spotted leaving a club or a known cruising ground. If you experience threats to out you to your husband or wife, your family, your community, gurdwara, masjid, church or workplace, from someone you know or you are related to, this might be considered as harassment or blackmail, and the person could be charged with a criminal offence. If this is happening to you, Galop can give you advice and support about your options, and help you decide if you’d like to report your experiences to the police.
