Anti-LGBT attacks rising sharply in Spain


235 in 6 months; 75% of victims do not report it to police

In the first six months of 2014 alone, some 235 anti-LGBT attacks were recorded. However, according to the report, the number is but a small fraction of those that have actually occurred, since 75% of the victims do not report the incidents out of fear or shame, said the special prosecutor for hate crimes and discrimination in Catalonia, Miguel Angel Aguilar, who called for attacks to be reported to the authorities. 

In 2013 anti-LGBT attacks were the most numerous of the categories cited above, with 452 cases of abuse, acts of aggression, bodily harm or threats were ascertained. The figures from the first six months of this year confirm a rising trend of incidents originating in hate due to sexual orientation or identity, according to the report.
