Mul­ti­ple at­tacks on LGBTI hate vic­tims

The Scotsman - - News Digest -

Al­most a third of LGBTI Scots who have ex­pe­ri­enced hate crime have been the vic­tim of at least ten at­tacks, Equal­ity Net­work fig­ures have re­vealed.

A sur­vey of LGBTI peo­ple in Scot­land found that three fifths (61 per cent) con­sid­ered them­selves to have been a tar­get of a hate crime at some point in their lives. Of those re­spon­dents who had suf­fered such an at­tack, 90 per cent said they had been tar­geted two or more times, while 30 per cent had ex­pe­ri­enced abuse on more than ten oc­ca­sions.
