What kind of things should I report to Galop?

We want to hear about incidents where the victim is LGBT or where the incident itself is anti-LGBT including:

  • Harassment
  • Physical or verbal attacks
  • Verbal or physical abuse
  • Hate mail
  • Domestic Violence
  • Hate crimes
  • Sexual assault
  • Graffiti
  • Problems with the police
  • Abuse from family
  • Damage to property

We can also take reports from a witness to any of these even if you were not the victim yourself.

Galop wants to hear about as many incidents as possible even if you do not want to pursue the matter further.  The more information we have about LGBT hate crime in general the better we can work to prevent it.  No matter how insignificant an incident may seem it can be very useful in forming a wider picture of hate crime or linking other similar incidents.
