We are continuing to lobby the Scottish Government to ensure full equality for LGBT people around incitement to homophobic hatred. We have recently submitted evidence to the Justice Committee, who are debating new legislation around this issue, which was considered so offensive that only an edited version was allowed to be published on their website – surely proof enough that such material should not be legal in civilised society. Our briefing in both forms is available here.
We need your help to continue this campaign! Tell us about your experience around homophobia and incitement to hatred on our on-line survey (closing this Friday!), and if you are willing to share your story in more detail, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For media enquiries in the first instance please contact Stonewall Scotland on 0131 474 8019 or email email@example.com. If you have an out of office media enquiry please call 07870 650 662.
