    One plus and one minus. Do more for the Trans. Community, dear politicians ! They deserve MUCH MORE SUPPORT-both in The UK and in my Norway- Period.

  2. These figures are still only the tip of the iceberg but it’s good to hear more transphobic crime is getting recorded.

    Have they started monitoring biphobic hate crimes separately?

    Not convinced,so much homophobic and transphobic crime goes un reported

    Just goes to prove there is a huge amount of work to be done to combat these heinous crimes. That some are afraid to report crimes is very disturbing. One hate crime is one too many in 2013/14 UK. Fear of reporting incidents to the police also need closer investigation. I wouldn’t even assume that all police stations are supportive.

    Does this include the homophobic and transphobic crimes committed by the scum sucking filth themselves?

    1. You sad person !

    Yes I am a victim of quite a lot of incidents recently, society has a long way to go to be trans friendly, I don’t trust police, they don’t tackle it and have no idea how to catch perpotrators, and with coalition austerity measures it can only get worse thanks to messrs Cameron & Clegg & co

      postopgirl ! You have all my sympathy. In spite of many hardships, it is positive to produce optimism and bright thoughts. Even in a “weak” position, fight back -together with friends and nice people !

    2. you can blame the police they don’t want to follow trans issues up cos the fact they don’t understand

    I wouldnt trust reports from S_onewall as they only report LGB they try ease T so its good read a home office report, people need report more even if it to partner groups if they dont want report direct to police. http://report-it.org.uk/home is good place start
