Project Launch - Street Smart

Friday, 17th May 2024

Street Smart Launch

Friday 17 May is the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT). It is also the day we officially launch step 1 of our new campaign, Street Smart.

We know that hate crimes have increased nationally against members of the LGBTQ+ community. We also know that not everyone will report it. We want to do something about this on a local level, initially by providing the LGBTQ+ community with a tool for reporting their experiences.

Funded by the Office of the Police & Crime Commissioner Community Safety Fund, and facilitated by Trade, the aim of this project is to get a true and clearer picture of hate crime in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland and the impact it has on the LGBTQ+ community.

Whether it was verbal or physical abuse, intimidation or threats of violence/sexual assault/blackmail – they all matter. Wherever the incident took place, we want to hear from you.

If you have experienced any of the incidents mentioned, follow the link to report it/them. 

If you have multiple experiences, please report them separately.

Remember this is only step 1, there’s more to come. Keep your eyes peeled for updates!
