Galop report: Online Hate Crime Report 2017

In August 2017, Galop published their first online anti-LGBT+ hate crime report.

The Online Hate Crime Report 2017 (pdf) presents evidence on the scale and nature of online hate crime and hate speech against LGBT+ people in the UK.

Key findings include:

  • 72% of respondents experiencing online hate crime had not reported their most recent experience
  • 34% of respondents that had experienced online hate crime said they would not consider reporting any hate crimes in the future
  • Experiences of reporting to online platforms were poor; interview participants were dissatisfied with the automated responses and that no action was taken.
