Mul­ti­ple hate at­tacks

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

AL­MOST a third of LGBTI Scots who have ex­pe­ri­enced hate crime have been the vic­tim of at least 10 at­tacks, new re­search has re­vealed.

A sur­vey of les­bian, gay, bi­sex­ual, trans and in­ter-sex peo­ple in Scot­land found that three-fifths (61%) con­sid­ered them­selves to have been a tar­get of a hate crime. Of those re­spon­dents who had suf­fered such an at­tack, 90% said they had been tar­geted two or more times, while 30% had ex­pe­ri­enced abuse on more than 10 oc­ca­sions.
