Twenty-one percent of gay and bisexual men and 18 percent of lesbian and bisexual women in Northern Ireland say they’ve been the victim of a homophobic hate crime or incident in the past three years.
The figure comes from a survey of 1,143 LGB people carried out by the Rainbow Project with funding from the Police Service of Northern Ireland.
The study found that 64 percent of such incidents were not reported to police and 30 percent resulted in physical injury.
