Our latest survey ‘Out In London – LGBTQ+ people’s safety on the London transport network’ reveals the extent of abuse, harassment and violence faced by the LGBTQ+ community when travelling in and around the capital:
- One in five (21%) survey respondents said they have experienced hate crime in the past year while travelling on public transport in London
- Four in five (82%) respondents change their behaviour or appearance to ‘fit in’ so they avoid abuse or harassment when travelling
- 65% of respondents who had experienced abuse or harm when travelling in London said bystanders witnessed the incident but did not intervene
- Many LGBTQ+ people we spoke to have little confidence or trust in the police, so incidents on London’s public transport network often go unreported
