Young LGBT people can often experience high levels of homophobic or transphobic hate crime at school or college, though it is often referred to homophobic or transphobic bullying. Young LGBT people can be especially vulnerable because they may feel isolated and reluctant to get help because they fear being ‘outed’ or don’t want to involve the police in incidents experienced at home or school. If you are a young person experiencing homophobic or transphobic hate crime you can get advice and support from Galop in confidence.
