When was the last time you had to look around before you held your partners hand? Or the last time you squealed at the sight of your community being represented in the media? How about the last time you read a story about your community being victimised and discriminated against because of who they love?
The reason I ask is because Stonewall, a charity there to support and empower the LGBT community; recently released new statistics regarding LGBT Hate Crime and Discrimination in the UK, and the results are still as shocking as ever.
As you’ll probably soon tell I’ve sat on this post for a few days, debating whether to hit publish, as no matter how many times I’ve tried I’ve failed to really write a conclusion to it. I guess until discrimination ends there won’t ever be a conclusion. I guess I also needed to get a few things off my chest.
