The Gay Hate Crimes Crisis Isn't Over Yet | Bilerico

The Gay Hate Crimes Crisis Isn't Over Yet | The Bilerico Project:
"Homophobic hate crimes are on the rise, and for every hate crime that makes the statistics, how many go unreported? Obviously, there are few numbers available, but one study out of Ireland this year found that sixty-four percent of homophobic hate crimes are not reported to police. A 2007 study by Human Rights First determined that '[London] police themselves estimate that some 90 percent of homophobic hate crimes go unreported.'"
