This section explains why it is important that you tell someone that you’ve experienced a hate crime, whether you chose to report to the police or tell another organisation such as Galop.
Homophobic and transphobic abuse and violence are huge problems – most of us know someone who has experienced this at some point. But the information about homophobic and transphobic hate crime is very limited because many people do not report their experiences.
Galop can give you advice and support, and can also take a report from you if you wish – without you having to speak to the police.
Always remember that if the victim or any other person feels that an incident is homophobic or transphobic then the police should treat it as such without needing to be convinced of this.
