Blow the Whistle on Gay Hate

A guide for the public on what to do if you have experienced a hate crime or incident


YouGov research has shown that one in six lesbian, gay and bisexual people have experienced a homophobic hate crime or incident in the last three years. And three in four of those didn’t report them to the police.

Blow the Whistle gives clear, concise information for people who are victims of homophobic hate crime. The guide explains what homophobic hate crime is, why hate crime should be reported and what to say when reporting it. A third of victims don’t report incidents because they don’t think the police would or could do anything about it.

Blow the Whistle on Gay Hate has been distributed through bars and clubs, student unions, ACPO and Citizens Advice Bureaux.
