See the difference

that people’s reports have made

Find out more

about what a hate incident is, and why reporting makes a difference.

We empower each other through sharing statistics and evidence about the nature of anti-LGBTQI+ hate, and stories about the work which we’re doing to make change.

Hate incidents and hate crimes are acts of hostility directed at people because of who they are or who someone thinks they are.

By reporting an incident as a survivor, witness or support organisation – you are contributing to a pool of evidence which will help us fight for the rights of LGBTQI+ people. You can report anonymously and your information will still make a difference. And you do not need to know whether or not the incident you experienced is a hate crime in order to report.
