This report investigates the experiences of Hate Crimes and related incidents for FE and HE students who identify as LGBT. For many LGBT students, college and university is a time where they are able to explore and define their gender and/or sexual identities. Such an environment is destroyed when students are targeted by antisocial behaviour or crime because of their sexual orientation and/or gender identity.
Unfortunately, this report shows that these negative experiences are a reality for some students. Moreover, in many cases, these incidents occur in and around the college or university campus, perpetrated by fellow students.
