    All Homophobic hate crime should be punnished. But there will come a time when it stops all together and no hate crime to contend with! and that will be great.

    Gald to hear you are so optimistic Brian! Personally speaking, I am in my 60`s and in my time I can only report that things have got a lot worse.Personlly-I don`t see any signs of any improvement whatsoever. And the schoolkids are the worst-and they are the future!

  3. Great news on one hand that many are now being taken before the courts but very sad that there are so so many low life out there who believe its still acceptable to abuse gay men and women. We should NEVER let our guard down. Please report this crime you don’t have to suffer from this abuse. I allowed a person to abuse for over a year before reporting the crime – I wish I had acted earlier. There is support out there, the police are getting far better at dealing with these crime in many parts of the UK. I know there are some parts of the UK where the police need to improve their service but alway report even if via a third party.

  5. The police are the primary gay Hate Crime problem where I live. 23 Dec 2009, 7:46pm

    There are three primary places where homophobia continues be promoted & thrive.

    1. Religious establishments
    2. Education establishments
    3. Judicary & Police establishments

    These are the bedrock of continued homophobia in the UK
