Transphobia

In all areas of our daily lives, we need to seek out and celebrate diversity.

! - 72% of trans people have experienced some kind of harassment in a public place.*

! - 21% of trans people reported not going out because of previous harassment in public.*

* Engendered Penalties, Press for Change, 2007

A transphobic hate crime is any criminal offence motivated by prejudice or hatred based on a person’s trans identity.

Reporting a transphobic hate crime or incidents is just as important as reporting homophobic crimes and incidents and should be reported with the same urgency.
