This survey is open to all LGBT+ people. This includes people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, non-binary, queer, pansexual, intersex, asexual and any other minority sexual orientation and/or gender identity.

We want to know about any incidents of online hate crime and hate speech that you may have experienced, targeting you, another LGBT+ individual or group, or the LGBT+ community more widely.

If you choose to take part, your contribution will be very valuable in helping us to better understand and tackle online hate crime and hate speech.
