This section gives advice on staying safe in a variety of situations where you might experience homophobic or transphobic hate crime. As LGBT people we sometimes chose to change our behaviour to avoid putting ourselves at greater risk of being victimised.
Although you can’t predict when violence may occur, and neither should you be in a state of fear when you go out, there are some strategies you can adopt to try to minimise the chances of being attacked or abused by a stranger.
When you are in a bar or club try not to leave your drink unattended or accept drinks or drugs from someone without knowing where they came from.
